READING, Pa. (AP) - Rescue workers have recovered the body of a man missing after the boat he was in overturned on an eastern Pennsylvania lake.

Police in Berks County said three men were out on Blue Marsh Lake in a 14-foot motorized boat Friday night when it capsized near a Bern Township launch.

Jeff Piscanio, chief ranger at Blue Marsh Lake and recreation area, said two men reached shore but one didn’t make it back. He said none of the boaters were wearing life jackets.

Rescue teams searched for a few hours and dive teams called to the scene Saturday morning found the missing man’s car keys and later located his body.

The county coroner’s office said an autopsy is scheduled on the victim, identified as 56-year-old Cao Van Nguyen of Muhlenberg Township.
