ORIGINAL STORY:
Officials with the Becker County Sheriff's Office tell us that they've recovered the body of a man in Little Detroit Lake in Minnesota. Detroit Lakes Police responded to a report of a missing man at about 2:00 p.m. Friday. The man had not been seen for about a week.

The information they received lead police to search an area of the city beach near the Detroit Lakes City Park. That's where they found personal property on the beach near the Detroit Lakes City Pavilion.

Officers from the Detroit Lakes Police, Becker County Sheriff's Office and Becker County Sheriff's Boat and Water Patrol began searching an area of Little Detroit Lake. With the help of area pilot David Sherbrooke and Investigator Robert Strand, they were able to locate the body by plane.

The name of the man who was found is being withheld until the family has been notified.

The body is being sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
