PINEY FLATS — A 14-year-old Erwin boy’s is the latest life lost on area lakes this year, according to information released Saturday evening by the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office.

The body of Cody Daniel Riddle — whose 14th birthday was Aug. 3 — was recovered from Boone Lake at about 3 p.m. Saturday, SCSO Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart said.

That was roughly 12 hours after friends said Riddle was last seen on the shoreline of an island in the lake, Earhart said, and about five hours after Riddle’s camping companion’s first reported to the sheriff’s office that Riddle was missing from the island.
