Body of missing swimmer found in northern Iowa quarry

IONIA, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities have recovered a body from a quarry near the Little Cedar River in northern Iowa.

Mason City television station KIMT reports crews began searching for the missing swimmer Wednesday night after they were called to Chickasaw Park, which sits about two miles west of Ionia.

A Chickasaw County Emergency Management official says a dive team discovered the body of an 18-year-old in the water around 3 p.m. Thursday. An autopsy has been scheduled. The person's identity has not been released.

Iowa Department of Natural Resources officers and a spokesman for the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office didn't return calls Thursday from The Associated Press.
