CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The body of a Charles Town man who drowned on Saturday was pulled from the Shenandoah River on Monday, officials said.
John Sherey, 35, was found about 10:30 a.m. by a fisherman who was helping authorities search for him, said Ed Smith, chief of the Independent Fire Co. in Ranson.
Sherey's body was found about 300 yards downstream from the point he went under water, said Smith.
The fisherman noticed the body in a rocky area of the river about 100 feet from the bank, Smith said. Sherey disappeared Saturday evening about a half-mile downstream of the Bloomery Bridge, officials said.
