WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (AP) - Police have identified a Chicago man whose body was found in the Wisconsin River near Wisconsin Dells after he had gone missing.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office identified the man Wednesday as 21-year-old Andreas S.C. Baban. The sheriff’s office says he was found dead by a dive team around 6 p.m. Monday.

According to authorities, Baban was fishing on a rock island in the river Saturday evening and tried to get back to shore, but appeared to get caught in a strong current and went underwater. Attempts to rescue him by family and witnesses were not successful.

Authorities searched for the man Saturday and Sunday before finding his body Monday.
