Body found during search for missing 18-year-old swimmer on Bush Lake

Crews have recovered a body as they searched Bush Lake for a teen swimmer reported missing on Saturday.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office says friends reported the 18-year-old man missing around 3:30 p.m. at East Bush Lake Beach.

According to deputies, a friend reported the missing man was among teenagers swimming towards a dock about 100 feet from the beach. But, the missing man never surfaced from the water after the swim.

Deputies searched the lake for hours using boats to scan the waters for the teen before finding the body Saturday evening.

Deputies say an official identification will be made by the medical examiner.
