Search teams looking for a man missing in an Anoka County lake since Saturday afternoon found a body on Sunday.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office confirmed that its Marine Unit recovered the body from Lake George, in Oak Grove, around 1 p.m.

The man has not been identified yet, but authorities said on Saturday that he was aged 53 and from Oak Grove.

He is believed to have removed his life jacket and gone swimming near a boat on the lake, when he went under.

Lake George Regional Park is found along the north shore of Lake George, which includes a swimming beach, a picnic pavilion, and a boat launch.
