ADAMS COUNTY (WAOW)--Adams County officials are investigating the drowning death of a young man in the Wisconsin Dells area.

The 22-year-old went into the Kilbourn Flowage area of the Wisconsin River, apparently to swim Sunday night. Around 8:30 PM, the Adams County Sheriff's Department responded because the man went missing. The Juneau County Dive Team found the man's body just before 10:30 PM.

The man was from Turkey, working in the Wisconsin Dells area. Investigators won't release the man's name until his family is notified.

Officials warn swimmers that shifting currents in rivers are extremely dangerous.
