Rescue crews in Montgomery County recovered the body of a 25-year-old drowning victim Saturday.

Precinct 1 Lake Patrol and with several other agencies were on Lake Conroe near Atkins Creek on Saturday night looking for the missing 25-year-old boater.

Officials say he was in a pontoon boat with a group of people when he saw what he believed were two women in the water in distress.
