A cave rescue is now underway in Jackson County, Tennessee.

Divers started searching for Bratchley inside the cave at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday, ABC News reported.

"The diver was located and brought out of the cave by rescue divers!" they posted.

Responders at the scene discovered a group of tourists from the United Kingdom had been diving in and exploring the Mill Pond Cave for the last few days. A group of five went for a dive at around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, when they returned, they couldn't find one of the members of their group.

"There's a British cave diver who is overdue on a dive in a cave in Tennessee, a place called Mill Pond Cave, Flynn Creek in Gainsboro", Bill Whitehouse from the British Cave Rescue Council told the Press Association.

"A couple of others there went in to look for him and weren't able to find him".

A member of the rescue team tells NewsChannel 5 the man was one of the rescue divers who saved a Thailand Soccer team from a cave a year ago.

On-site officials say two physicians are ready if necessary.
