WEST BRANCH, Mich. (AP) – The body of a 67-year-old diver has been recovered from Lake Huron.

The Bay City Times reports Monday that state police divers found Richard Castillo’s body Sunday afternoon near a shipwreck he and two others were trying to explore.

Castillo and the other divers left an Oscoda boat launch Saturday afternoon and headed eight miles out on the lake to the shipwreck.

The other divers returned to the boat and contacted the U.S. Coast Guard when Castillo failed to show up.

The Coast Guard was unable to find Castillo Saturday.

State police Sgt. Pete McNamara says Monday that it’s not known how Castillo became separated from the other divers.

An autopsy will be performed to determine how he died.
