A man drowned Monday in the Red River below the spillway of the Denison Dam in Bryan County.

Enrique Amador, 29, was swimming with friends about 3 p.m. Monday and was last seen sitting on rocks in the river, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports.

When friends called out to him and he didn't respond, they walked to their vehicle. When they next looked, Amador no longer was on the rocks and was not visible in the water.

His body was found about 5 p.m. in approximately four feet of water near the north shoreline. He was not wearing a life jacket. The medical examiner's office was called.
