Authorities find missing Wood County man's body in lake

Posted:
WOOD COUNTY (WAOW) -

Authorities in Wood County have found the body of a man who went missing in January.

Grand Rapids Police Chief Dave Lewandowski told Newsline 9 Greg Senn's body was found in Lake Wazeecha around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The lake is located near Wisconsin Rapids.

Lewandowski said a passerby noticed a hat in the water Tuesday afternoon and notified police. Crews discovered the hat was attached to Senn's body. They retrieved the body from the water about an hour later, Lewandowski said.

The police chief said the thawing water likely brought the body near the surface of the water, but he said they don't know how long Senn's body has been in the water. Lewandowski said an autopsy has been ordered and should take place within the next few days.

Senn went missing January 14. He was last seen in Grand Rapids.
