KELSO, Wash. - The body of a 19-year-old Vancouver man was recovered from the Yale Reservoir Monday, in an apparent drowning.

Friends said they saw Austin Wolford slip out of an inner tube Sunday and he sank before they could reach him. He was not a strong swimmer.

Divers searched the reservoir Monday for his body and found it a short distance away from where he went under, according to the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office.
