EAST TROY, Wis. (AP) - Part of Mill Lake is being temporarily closed as authorities continue searching for the body of a fourth missing man from Illinois.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says part of the Walworth County lake is closed to the public. And divers have resumed their search on Thursday.

The bodies of three other men have been recovered from the lake since the four were reported missing Sunday. State officials say the four friends, ages 20 to 23, left a lake house where they were spending the weekend and apparently took a canoe out on the lake in the middle of the night and never returned.

The canoe was later spotted overturned in the lake, which is part of the Lake Beulah chain of lakes about 35 miles southwest of Milwaukee.
