Greene County Sheriff’s Office deputies are dragging the Nolichucky River to find a Greene County man’s body.


Nahum Martinez, 25, was reported missing at 6:23 p.m. on Wednesday, GCSO Sgt. Margaret Knight said. 


“He was swimming,” Knight said. “He was in the river and he didn’t know how to swim.”

Knight said emergency crews have been looking for Martinez since he was reported missing.


“They will be out there until they find his body,” Knight said.
