Craig Morgan's son found dead

Country star Craig Morgan's 19-year-old son Jerry Greer has been found dead following a tubing accident in Kentucky Lake, Tennessee, over the weekend.

The American country star has been left devastated after 19-year-old Jerry Greer's lifeless body was discovered in Kentucky Lake in Humphreys County, Tennessee, by an emergency response team on Monday (11.07.16) night.

A representative for the family said: "It is with deep sadness that I am confirming the passing of Jerry Greer, son of country music entertainer Craig Morgan and wife Karen Greer."

The teenager - who was wearing a life jacket when he was found - was reported missing on Sunday (10.07.16) evening after he was involved in a tubing accident with a friend.

The unidentified man resurfaced but Jerry did not.

The spokesperson explained to E! News: "The Humphreys County Sheriff's Department recovered his body this evening after a search that began Sunday following a boating accident on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee. A 2016 graduate of Dickson County High School, Jerry planned to play football for Marshall University in the fall. The family is grateful for the outpouring of support and requests prayers at this time as they privately mourn this terrible loss."

Jerry leaves behind his heartbroken parents, his sister Aly Beaird and his brothers Kyle Greer and Wyatt Greer.

The devastated family are now arranging his funeral.
