Body Of Missing Man Found In Pa. Lake

QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - State police say divers in a suburban Philadelphia lake have recovered the body of a man who has been missing for several days.

Police say the body of the 23- year-old Philadelphia man was recovered at about noon Sunday in Lake Nockamixon in rural upper Bucks County north of the city.

Authorities believe the man, whose name is not being released, came alone to the 1,450-acre lake on a fishing trip. He was last seen Wednesday and was reported missing Saturday morning after his van was found in the parking lot.

A small rowboat that may have been his was found Saturday on the bank near the Route 563 bridge with a paddle and fishing gear nearby.
