NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A body discovered Tuesday is likely that of a man who disappeared in the water ten days ago.

Metro Nashville Police say a boater on Percy Priest Lake spotted the body. It appears to be that of Tremayne Scales. According to witnesses, the 42-year old Scales vanished 10 days ago after jumping into the water to try to help a struggling 11-year-old swimmer. 

Authorities say the witnesses reported Scales helped get the child onto a boat south of the Hobson Pike Bridge, before he went underwater and did not resurface.
