WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve found the body of a 21-year-old Chicago man who disappeared in the Wisconsin River near Wisconsin Dells.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says the man was found dead by a dive team around 6 p.m. Monday. According to authorities, he went underwater about 7 p.m. Saturday and did not resurface.

Witnesses told the sheriff’s office that the man had been fishing on a rock island in the river and appeared to get caught in a current as he swam back to shore. Family members and witnesses did not succeed in attempts to rescue him.

The man’s name has not been released.
