LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) _ Authorities have recovered the body of a
northern Idaho man who drowned while swimming in the Clearwater
River.

The Nez Perce County sheriff's office says a search and rescue
team found 42-year-old Clifton L. Two Hatchet, of Sweetwater, on
Friday.

The man went missing Thursday while swimming near Myrtle Beach
and authorities launched a search later that day but encountered
problems because of how fast the water was moving, the Lewiston
Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/pkFTvo ).

The body was found about two hours after the search resumed
early Friday near U.S. Highway 12.
