Dive teams removing man’s body from Lake Wylie

Shortly before noon Thursday, Charlotte Fire Department divers were removing the body of 30-year-old Connor Oliver from Lake Wylie.

Oliver’s body was reportedly found via sonar Wednesday night near YMCA Camp Thunderbird on the lake.

The call came in just after 5 p.m. Wednesday that a man was missing. Officials at the scene near the Buster Boyd Bridge on Highway 49 said the man was on a boat with family and friends when he went into the water. The man was later identified as Oliver.

A YMCA of Greater Charlotte spokesperson told WBTV on Wednesday that the man was not a camper or counselor at YMCA Camp Thunderbird.
