    A boater who was reported missing on Lake Champlain in Vermont has been found.

    Vermont State Police said Thursday that search teams had recovered the body of 67-year-old George Ruhe, who splits his time between Westhersfield, Connecticut, and Brattleboro, Vermont.

    Ruhe was reportedly winterizing his boat over the weekend off the shore of Lake Champlain, near Burlington. But he had not been seen since.

    Crews from Vermont State Police and the U.S. Coast Guard scanned the lake Thursday by water and by air.
