ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) — The body of a 20-year-old Bridgeport man has been found in an Ansonia lake.

The New Haven Register reports that Ansonia police Sgt. Jenifer Guisto said the man was swimming with friends who called police to report him missing at about 4 p.m. Saturday.

Police have not released the man’s name.

Police Lt. Wayne Williams said the body was found by a police dive team in 15 feet of water. Fountain Lake is about 30 feet at its deepest.

Williams said there was no indication of illegal activity, drinking or foul play.

The state medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy.
