A search for a missing boater has come to a sad end on a lake in Dakota County.

Divers have recovered a body on Burnsville's Crystal Lake, where a man disappeared this weekend after jumping into the water.

The search effort began at 5:45 p.m. Saturday when the sheriff's office responded to a call about a possible drowning. 

Per a news release, "a witness reported that an adult male jumped from a boat to help another and the male did not resurface."

The body was found shortly before 11:30 p.m. Saturday night, the sheriff says.
