Body found in Lake Michigan

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard says the body of a man who was missing since a boat crash on Lake Michigan near the Summerfest grounds in downtown Milwaukee has been found.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the 32-foot vessel collided with the breakwall along the Summerfest grounds about 1:10 a.m. Wednesday.

Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Casey Steuer says the impact threw the operator and three passengers overboard. The three passengers were found on the breakwall and rescued.

However, the body of the boat operator was recovered on the bottom of the lake near the crash site about noon Wednesday. His name was not immediately released.
