Sheriff: Verona man's body recovered from lake

HAZELHURST, Wis. (AP) -- Oneida County Sheriff Jeffrey Hoffman has identified the body of a boater recovered from a northern Wisconsin lake.

He is 46-year-old Jon G. Seliger of Verona. 

A search for Seliger began late Thursday morning when the sheriff's department got a 911 call reporting an unattended motorboat going in circles on Garth Lake near Hazelhurst. 

Hoffman says Seliger's body was found about 6 p.m. 

In a statement Friday, Hoffman provided no details about how Seliger may have fallen in the water.
