SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (AP) — The body of a 71-year-old fisherman has been recovered from East Okoboji Lake in northeast Iowa.

The Sioux City Journal reports that the body of Wayne Krogman, of Spirit Lake, was found just after 4 a.m. Thursday.

A news release from the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office says Krogman had been fishing Wednesday in waters near the spillway at the north end of the lake. His wife became concerned when he did not return home. She found his truck at the fish hatchery, but could not find him.

The Spirit Lake Police Department arrived around 1 a.m. Thursday to look for Krugman, and a rescue team soon followed.
