MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in Baxter County have identified the man whose body was found in Lake Norfork last week.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says the victim has been identified as 67-year-old Jerry Dale Miller of Hardy. Montgomery says family members told authorities that Miller had been visiting relatives in the Hand Cove Area of Baxter County and had gone fishing alone on Friday morning.

Miller’s body was recovered Friday night in the Cove 1C area, which about a half-mile from the Fulton County line. Montgomery says Miller’s boat was found in about 18 feet of water Saturday night by an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission dive team.

The death remains under investigation.
