KUTTAWA, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police say the body of a 9-year-old boy has been recovered from Barkley Lake.

Warren Patterson's body was found late Wednesday night by divers from the Marshall County Rescue Squad.

The boy had been last seen at Kuttawa Beach late Wednesday afternoon.

More than 60 volunteers combed the area late into Wednesday evening, hoping to find Warren alive. Authorities had to turn away some volunteers out of concern for their safety.

After the boy's body was found in the water, the Lyon County coroner pronounced the boy dead at the scene.
