Deputies find body of missing man in frozen California lake

MEYERS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Northern California say they have found the body of a man who has been missing since Thanksgiving, in a frozen lake.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found the body of 39-year-old David Schmidt Saturday in Lake Baron after deputies used a remotely operated vehicle to search the lake. It says no foul play is suspected.

The office says it received a report Schmidt had gone missing Thursday and that he likely fell through the ice while walking his three dogs.

It says deputies, a dive team, firefighters and a search and rescue team searched Thursday and Friday after finding cold weather clothing in the lake.

The office says the dogs were taken to a vet for treatment.
