The 19-year-old and another man were on a raft being pulled by a boat when they were thrown from the raft and Greer never resurfaced, Rob Edwards, Chief Deputy with the Humphreys County Sheriff's Office, told ET on Monday.

"The family is grateful for the outpouring of support and requests prayers at this time as they privately mourn this terrible loss," the rep's statement continued. "Funeral arrangements are pending."

No cause of death has been officially released.
