Police say a body has been recovered from a lake in Wells Township, Rice County, after a 911 call Thursday morning.

The caller told dispatchers that they were looking for their father at his home in the 3000 block of Cannon Lake Trail. When Rice County deputies arrived, they noticed a pair of boots floating in Cannon Lake away from the shore.

The Rice County Dive Team was sent to the lake, but as they waited for divers to arrive, deputies commandeered a boat and a short time later found a man in the lake.

He was removed from the water and pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigation suggests no trauma or foul play is suspected. The victim's identity has not been released at this stage.
