Deputies in western North Carolina continue searching for the body of a teenager in a cold mountain lake.

Just before 7 p.m. Monday, the Henderson County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call concerning a possible drowning in Lake Summit.

Units from the Henderson County Sheriff's Office, Green River Fire and Rescue, Saluda Fire and Rescue, Henderson County Rescue Squad and EMS responded.

Witnesses reported that four friends were swimming and jumping from the train trestle near the south end of the lake when the victim, identified as Traverious Leqwell Carter, 19 years old, began having a hard time swimming and called for help.

The victim was unable to swim to shore and his friends were unable to assist him in the deep water. Recovery efforts were suspended due to nightfall and severe weather concerns. The efforts by emergency workers resumed Tuesday.
