GREENWOOD CO., SC (WSPA) – The body of a man who drowned at Lake Greenwood was recovered after a five-day search.

The coroner’s office says 44-year-old Steve Roger Grigg II of Blacksburg was found around 9:15 p.m. Thursday.

The coroner says Grigg jumped off a boat to swim on Saturday. Soon after diving into the lake, he went under the water and did not surface.

Grigg’s body was recovered from the lake near the club house on Pucketts Ferry.

The coroner said Grigg died of drowning and ruled the manner of death an accident.

The Gaffney Ledger reports Grigg’s body was recovered one day after hundreds of people in the Blacksburg area held a candlelight service and prayed that God would comfort Grigg’s family and help searchers in their efforts to find Grigg. The newspaper reports that three truckloads of bottled water, snacks and sports drinks were collected for search and rescue teams, as well as $3,800 in donations for the family.
