MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — Investigators believe the body of missing teenager Zach Marsh was found along the Cumberland River in Montgomery County Sunday.

The Sheriff's Department says a fisherman called 911 just before noon after seeing a body near the shoreline around Lock B South.

Officials report that preliminary information from the scene makes them believe it's Marsh's body. The medical examiner's office is determining official identification and cause of death.

Marsh's vehicle was found abandoned on Jarrell Ridge Road December 20, about five miles upstream from where the body was found. The 19-year-old's family and officials had conducted multiple searches in the area.

The investigation is ongoing.
