ROSWELL, Ga — The body of Buyoya Paul Biswalo, 32, who was last seen rafting with friends on the Chattahoochee River, has been recovered. The body was located using a helicopter from the Department of Natural Resources.

The Roswell Fire Department along with members of the Johns Creek Swift Water Rescue, Roswell Police, Department of Natural Resources, Dawson County K-9, National Park Service, Forsyth County Dive Team, City of Atlanta Fire, Sandy Springs Fire and Police and the Clayton County Dive Team, spent the last seven days searching for the victim using sonar, cameras, K-9s, and helicopters.

Water levels were down today aiding in the search efforts. The National Parks Department coordinated the release of water from Morgan Falls and the Army Corps of Engineers restricted the release of water from Buford Dam.

    A Great Friend and The Best Kicker in the N.O. during our days
    August 13, 2013 | 12:17 PM

    Don't even know where to start. All I know is when you Came to 35 you wanted to play soccer but we didnt have a team so we got you to be the Kicker on the Football team. I will always remember the fun and conversations we had during practices & going out there and gettin it done on the field. Not to mention the fun that we had during Mr. Harris Chem Class. I know God has you know and your smiling down on all of us from above, Its just still hard to believe and accept. Still Praying for your family and all of our friends during this time. We shall meet again and I'll be ready to hold the Pigskin for you anytime, just don't kick my hand off like you did that one time...:) :/
