WAVERLY, Tenn. (AP) -- According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the body of 19-year-old Jerry Greer was recovered after a tubing accident on the Tennessee River in Humphreys County.
Greer's body was pulled from Kentucky lake, part of the Tennessee River around 9 p.m. Monday.
Greer is the son of country music singer, Craig Morgan.
The search efforts took several hours. Greer's friend who was driving the boat at the time of the crash went out with search crews to give them a better idea of the location where the accident happened.
The family released a statement in part, saying they are "grateful for everyone’s support and prayers and requests privacy during this difficult time."
