The body of a 24-year-old man who drowned in Lake North near Columbus has been recovered.
The Platte County Dive and Rescue team recovered the body of Jorge Manuel of Madison Monday.
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office says a fisherman reported that Manuel was fishing with family members Saturday night. Manuel went into the water and stayed under. Family members unsuccessfully tried to find him.
Initially, strong winds created currents too swift for drivers to search the lake.
