Knoxville (WVLT) - County rescue divers have recovered the body of a man missing since Tuesday from the Cove at Concord Park.
It's that of 21-year-old Pedro Martinez.
Martinez's body was found near the channel, away from the Cove's swimming area.
Investigators say he told co-workers he was going for a swim at Cove Park on Tuesday.
When he didn't show up for work on Wednesday morning, his co-workers called authorities.
Maintenance crews at the Cove found his car and some clothes Wednesday afternoon.
An autopsy will be pre-formed, though investigators do not suspect foul play.
