The body of a man who apparently drowned Friday has been recovered from Everett’s Silver Lake.
At about noon Friday, a resident living along the lake called 911 to report seeing someone struggling in the water near a boat, according to Everett police. Officers, firefighters and parks personnel responded and found a small, unoccupied fishing boat floating in the lake, police said.
A search Friday failed to turn up the victim.
The search resumed Saturday morning and the police department’s Marine Unit recovered the body of a man who appeared to be in his mid-40s around 10:30 a.m., police said.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the man’s identity as well as cause and manner of death.
