MUSKEGON, Mich. —  Authorities say the body of a man who went missing in Muskegon Lake was recovered Friday evening.

The Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office says the body of Mark Allen Finkler, 60, of Twin Lake, was recovered from the lake at about 8:15 p.m. Friday.

Rescue crews from Muskegon County and the U.S. Coast Guard searched the lake for several hours after he went into the lake Friday afternoon from the Muskegon State Park Channel Campground.

Finkler reportedly went after his boat after it was swept off the beach and into the lake.

A woman at the campground told officials that he was 50 to 60 yards offshore when she saw him go under and not come back up.
