BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) - A dive team from the Crow Wing County sheriff's office has recovered the body of a man from Lower Whitefish Lake.


The office announced the body of the man was recovered in about 90 feet of water at midmorning Sunday. The body was taken to the Ramsey County medical examiner's office. Foul play is not suspected.

Deputies responded Saturday evening to a report that a 26-year-old man from St. Louis Park had jumped into the water off a pontoon boat, but did not resurface.

The name of the man was not immediately released.
