The body of a man who drowned on Lake Elizabeth Thursday evening was recovered Friday night.

The drowning victim was John A. Jones, 53, of Elgin, Ill., a Twin Lakes Police Department press release said.

Firefighters and dive teams from multiple jurisdictions had searched for Jones on Thursday and for his body all day Friday to no avail. The recovery effort was suspended for the night at around 6:30 p.m. Friday and was to resume Saturday morning.

But the police department received a call at 8:30p.m. from a citizen reporting a possible body floating in the lake. Police and fire personnel responded to the northwest side of Lake Elizabeth where the caller directed them and recovered the body of  Jones, who had been seen by witnesses in distress while in the water on Thursday around 5 p.m., the press release said.

The body was released to the Kenosha County Medical Examiner.

The drowning is being investigated by the Twin Lakes Police Department.
