VIRGINIA BEACH-- The body of a missing Virginia Beach man was found Friday in Crystal Lake near the Oceanfront.

Police say 27-year-old Charles Edward Griffin of the 1000 block of Pebblewood Drive was located by dive teams five feet below the water.

Police say Griffin was attending a party Sunday in the 3700 block of Atlantic Avenue that became disruptive. Griffin apparently left the party after hotel staff members called police and Griffin had not been heard from by his family for several days.

Residents near Crystal Lake heard a man yelling early Sunday morning. Police responded and searched the area including the water but couldn't locate a victim.

On Friday the police dive team searched Crystal Lake and found Griffin's body.

The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner.

This case remains under investigation.
