    New Hampshire Fish and Game Divers Recover Body of Missing Swimmer

    Divers from the New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game have recovered the body of a 47-year-old man reported missing in Country Pond in Kingston.

    Police and the New Hampshire Marine Patrol were called at about 5:20 p.m. Saturday after receiving a report that an adult male had attempted to swim about 150 yards from the mainland to a nearby island, but failed to arrive.

    Rescue personnel conducted an extensive search Saturday until they were forced to suspend operations at dark.

    A dive team resumed the search about 8:30 a.m. Sunday. The victim's body was recovered shortly before 9 a.m. about 50 yards (45.7 meters) from shore.

    The name of the victim, who was from Kingston, has not been released pending the notification of his family.
