Madison man's body recovered from Columbus-area lake
COLUMBUS - Authorities say the Platte County Dive and Rescue Team has recovered the body of 24-year-old Jorge Manuel of Madison. Manuel’s body was discovered floating in Lake North near Columbus at around 10 a.m. yesterday (Monday). Manuel had been missing since Saturday night when he was swimming in Lake North. Platte County Sheriff Jon Zavadil said Sheriff’s office personnel spent eight to ten hours on Saturday evening and Sunday searching for Manuel’s body. Deputies dragged the lake for hours, but couldn't send in divers because of dangerous winds and swift current conditions.
