CLEMENTON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in a Camden County lake this week is that of a former Marine who went missing last month.

County prosecutors announced Saturday that 29-year-old Lance James was found around noon Friday at Bottom Lake in Clementon.

James was last seen on Dec. 2 after he was escorted out of a Clementon bar after getting into a fight with another patron. Authorities believe he was attempting to walk to his nearby home when he disappeared.

Authorities are working to determine how his body ended up in the lake.

Family members have said James suffered from post-traumatic stress from serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. He had enlisted in 2007 and left the military in 2012.
