IONIA, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have recovered a body from a quarry near the Little Cedar River in northern Iowa.

Mason City television station KIMT reports (http://bit.ly/1Ugoz7e ) crews began searching for the missing swimmer Wednesday night after they were called to Chickasaw Park, which sits about two miles west of Ionia.

A Chickasaw County Emergency Management official says a dive team discovered the body of an 18-year-old in the water around 3 p.m. Thursday. An autopsy has been scheduled. The person’s identity has not been released.

Iowa Department of Natural Resources officers and a spokesman for the Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office didn’t return calls Thursday from The Associated Press.


This story has been updated to correct that the body was found in a quarry.
