The body of a missing boater who disappeared after an accident last weekend was found Sunday.

Bertie County Sheriff John Holley tells WITN the body of 22-year-old Quentin Andrews was found a mile and a half down river from the Williamston boat access dock. That's near where the accident took place a week ago.

For the past week crews have been out on the Roanoke River in Bertie County looking for Andrews.

Andrews and three others were in a boat accident last weekend. The three other people were rescued. Andrews mother said he had never been on a boat before and didn't know how to swim.

    This a very sad. I feel sorry for the family, but I have to commend my son friend who is white and his family. They loved my son just like he was theirs. His father call my son his black son which I did not find racist at all. He also said all people were the same, but black people had the better tan. I found that funny also. I know this is a very sad story, but please let's not put race in it, because I know some white men who have offered to speak with my son and black men who would turn their backs on him.

    i am glad that the andrews family got some closure, but i am also sorry for the lost. This case needs to be investigated and i hope the family goes above and beyond to find out what really happened to quint because he was a smart fellow and i know he would have put on a life jacket. he was so young why did he had to go out like that. why havent these other 3 guys been shown if they did nothing wrong why dont the public know who they are. There is something funny about this case and i believe there was a struggle. These other guys need to fess up and be men about the situation and really let this family know what happen to quint. God bless the family and im sorry for your lose.

    Why is it that in the year 2010 some people are still very closed minded and racist. And the sad thing is Wiliiamston is a very small community where everybody kinda knows everybody regardless of race. Instead of writing stereotypical messages you should be contacting the family of the young man who died to see if there is anything you may be able to do to help. Wise up people and realize that there is life outside of that small town that you have never left Williamston. My prayers go out to not only the family of the young man but to all of those who are too ignorant to realie that silence is powerful. So glad I left.
