    Body Recovered in NJ Lake Near Empty Boat

    Authorities have recovered a man's body from a lake in central New Jersey after an empty boat was found nearby earlier in the day.

    A spokesman for the State Police says the body was recovered at about 4 p.m. Wednesday in the water under a bridge at Farrington Lake in North Brunswick.

    Police found the body submerged in waters under the bridge and say the man was not wearing a life preserver.

    Boaters had spotted an empty boat on the lake around 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday and reported it to police.

    The boat was recovered and state police divers and local authorities searched the lake for several hours.

    Authorities say the man is in his 80s but they have not released his identity pending family notification.
