VALDOSTA — The body of a missing boater from Berrien County has been found in coastal Georgia, according to officials.

Sonny Eugene Lewis, 31, had been missing since being knocked out of a boat in an accident on the Satilla River along the Charlton County-Camden County line Saturday, said Capt. Bob Lynn of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

The accident occurred around 10:40 p.m. when two boats collided in a blind curve on the river, he said. 

The body was located Monday close to the accident site, Lynn said.

An autopsy will be performed, he said.
