DANFORTH, Maine (AP) — The body of a missing swimmer has been recovered from a Maine lake on the Canadian border.

The Maine Warden Service says 39-year-old Harry Dullys of New York City was staying his wife at a camp on Moon Island in East Grand Lake when he tried to swim with his dog out to an island about 200 yards away Sunday afternoon.

His wife said she noticed the dog swimming to the island but said she could not see Dullys.

Game wardens were called in to search for him.

They found what they believed to Dully's body late Sunday evening using sonar technology. A dive team recovered his body in 9-feet of water near Moon Island on Monday morning.
