MILFORD (CBS) – Dive crews have recovered the body of a swimmer who went missing at a quarry in Milford on Sunday.

Authorities say 18-year-old Nentor Dahn of Providence, Rhode Island was with friends and family when he disappeared.

Witnesses say Dahn appeared to hit the water awkwardly after jumping off a cliff. He never resurfaced.

First responders were called to the quarry at around 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Dive teams worked until 7 p.m. when the lack of light forced them to stop. The man’s body was found Monday morning in 70 feet of water.

Searchers used sonar to find Dahn’s body.
