DeKalb County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said Blakeley was last seen leaving a New Year's Eve party around 2 a.m. Wednesday, but was never reported missing.

His body was found by friends who went looking for him.

Dumdie says authorities believe alcohol was involved in Blakeley's death, but are waiting for autopsy results.

Waterman is about 11 miles south of DeKalb.
