The body of Buyoya Paul Biswalo, 32, who was last seen rafting with friends on the Chattahoochee River, has been recovered. The body was located using a helicopter from the Department of Natural Resources.

The Roswell Fire Department along with members of the Johns Creek Swift Water Rescue, Roswell Police, Department of Natural Resources, Dawson County K-9, National Park Service, Forsyth County Dive Team, City of Atlanta Fire, Sandy Springs Fire and Police and the Clayton County Dive Team, spent the last seven days searching for the victim using sonar, cameras, K-9s, and helicopters.

Water levels were down today aiding in the search efforts. The National Parks Department coordinated the release of water from Morgan Falls and the Army Corps of Engineers restricted the release of water from Buford Dam.
