HILLSDALE, Kan. (AP/KWCH) - Authorities identify a man whose body was found along with a submerged vehicle in a northeast Kansas lake.

The Kansas City Star reports that the Miami County Sheriff's Office and firefighters responded Wednesday morning to Hillsdale Lake after a fisherman reported seeing the body floating in the water. The body was pulled to shore, and divers found the vehicle underwater near a boat ramp.

The sheriff's office identified the man Wednesday afternoon as 63-year-old Robert Masters. The vehicle was identified as a 2001 Hyundai. The sheriff's office says while the investigation is ongoing, foul play is not suspected.
