    The body of a 22-year-old Lawrence, Massachusetts man who went missing while swimming in a lake in North Andover on Thursday has been recovered, officials said Friday.

    The man went underwater while swimming with his friends in Lake Cochichewick around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. He was reportedly with four other people on a raft. Two males fell in the water, but only one resurfaced.

    Crews searched the lake until about 10 p.m. but weren't able to locate him. The search resumed Friday at 8 a.m., and the man's body was found about two hours later.

    The man's family was at the scene and positively identified him as Rosido Jara. No foul play is suspected.
