WAITSFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say the investigation is continuing into the apparent drowning death of a 30-year-old man whose body was found in a Waitsfield swimming hole.

Police received a report Friday morning that a body had been found at the bottom of the Lareau Swimming Hole, just off Route 100.

A pile of clothing that included a driver’s license belonging to 30-year-old Richard Dillon of Warren was found at the edge of the river. Police say Dillon had been reported missing by his family the previous day. He was last seen leaving a friend’s Waitsfield home at about midnight on Aug. 17.

Troopers made positive identification of Dillon’s body, which was taken for autopsy.

Police say the death does not appear to be suspicious.
