Body found during search for missing 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 a group of teens swimming toward 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 before finding a body Saturday evening.

Deputies believe the body belongs to the missing swimmer, but say an official identification will be made by the medical examiner.
