Divers recover missing swimmer’s body Saturday at Lake Nicol

The body of a swimmer who went missing at a popular spot for thrill seekers has been recovered, Tuscaloosa Police said Saturday.

The victim has not yet been identified publicly, but TPD said they recovered the body around 7 p.m.

Officers were called to the lake just before 5 p.m. after a group of friends said a man jumped into the water and did not resurface. The group was hanging out at an area of Lake Nicol commonly known as the Cliffs, where people often jump from the cliffs and into the water.

TPD, Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue, the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s Marine Patrol Division and investigators with the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit all reported to the scene.
