JAMESTOWN, Ky. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a missing Ohio man was found dead in a truck pulled from a lake in Kentucky.

The Russell County Sheriff’s Department says divers recovered the body of 60-year-old Ronald Marshall, of Cincinnati, from the truck submerged in Lake Cumberland on Wednesday afternoon.

Marshall’s family had reported him missing Tuesday and hadn’t heard from him since late Saturday night.

Officials say the truck with Marshall’s body was under 12 feet of water about 30 feet from the bank.

The Kentucky medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
