Authorities recover body of missing ND man
WDAZ-TV reports that searchers located the body of 53-year-old Michael Hermanson Thursday morning at a lake in Eddy County.
Hermanson had been missing since Monday morning when he left to go fishing.
Eddy County Sheriff Brandon Maygra says searchers on the ground spotted equipment from Hermanson's truck floating in the water, leading them to discover his body.
Maygra says authorities believe Hermanson drove his vehicle onto the lake and it fell through. The sheriff says Hermanson managed to escape the vehicle and walk about a half mile before collapsing.
