The body of a Nebraska man who disappeared while swimming in a lake near Onawa Wednesday afternoon, was recovered this (Thursday) morning. The Omaha World-Herald, citing a news release from the Monona County Sheriff’s Office, says searchers found the body of 43-year old Garrett L. Grant, of Macy, NE., just before 8-a.m.

Authorities had received a report at around noon Wednesday, that family members were attempting to locate Grant after he went swimming in Blue Lake, at the Lewis and Clark State Park.  Divers and others searched the lake Wednesday until 8:45 p.m.,  when their efforts were suspended due to darkness.
