LAKE ELSINORE - A body was recovered from the waters of Lake Elsinore on Friday, Jan. 25, but the circumstances behind the person's death were unclear.

According to the Lake Elsinore Police Department, "The reporting party advised they saw what appeared to be a person lying face down in shallow water, near Seaport Launch Area. Upon their arrival, deputies coordinated with California Department of Forestry members to recover the body."

The body of a 56-year-old adult male was recovered from the lake, according to police, and they don't suspect any foul play is involved. But they said the cause of death will be determined after an autopsy is completed.

The identity of the man will be released after his family has been notified.

This is an active investigation and the Lake Elsinore Police Department encourages anyone with information regarding this incident to call Investigator Carranza of the Lake Elsinore Police Department at (951) 245-3300.
