TRAVIS COUNTY -- Divers with the Travis County Sheriff's Office recovered a body from Lake Travis Sunday.

Authorities say they received a call around 4:30 p.m. about a missing swimmer at Bob Wentz Park. The caller said the man had been missing for about 15 minutes.

Sheriff's deputies worked with park rangers, EMS and fire officials to find the man. He was not immediately found in the area where he was last seen.

Around 10:10 p.m., divers with the sheriff's recovery team found a body in about six feet of water, several yards from the last seen location reported by the witness.
