The Dandridge Fire Department and Jefferson County Rescue Squad recovered a body early Sunday morning from Douglas Lake.

It happened just before midnight at the private dock for the Bouldercrest community, according to fire chief Andrew Riley.

A man and his fiance came off the lake. When his fiance returned to the dock, she couldn't find her fiance. That woman ran to a neighbor's home to call 911, Riley said.

Rescue crews found the man around 3 a.m. under the dock in about 17 feet of water, Riley said. The cause of the drowning is under investigation.
