GRAND RIVER — Fairport Harbor U.S. Coast Guard officials said the body of an older white male was recovered from Lake Erie Thursday afternoon.

Petty Officer Christopher Jones said Thursday a state Department of Natural Resources fishing survey boat spotted the man's body just before 3 p.m. amongst a reed bed along the shoreline, near Grand River Marine.

Coast Guard officials were unable to estimate how long the man's body had been in the lake, deferring medical queries to the Lake County coroner's office.

The Fairport police and fire departments ultimately arrived on-scene, with Fairport detectives assuming the investigation.

No further details were available Thursday.
