Posted: Updated:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -

The body of a 22-year-old missing Yellowstone National Park employee was recovered Saturday evening. Darien Latty had been missing since Monday evening after he and two other park concession workers had gone floating down the Lamar River.

The Georgia native was last seen by his coworkers being swept down the Lamar without a life vest.

Search efforts began Monday evening and intensified throughout the week, culminating with over 50 people involved in the search.

A swiftwater rescue team from the Gallatin County recovered Latty's body Saturday afternoon and his body was air lifted from from the area.

Latty was working as a seasonal employee at the Roosevelt Lodge.

Floating down the Lamar River is prohibited by park regulations.
