The body of 35-year-old Kevin McCormick, of Bloomingdale, was found Tuesday afternoon more than 150 yards from the shoreline of Glenwild Lake Sunday morning, Bloomingdale Police Chief Joe Borrell said in a statement.
Police said the preliminary investigation indicates that McCormick accidentally drowned.
Police said McCormick was reported missing on Sunday morning after his family reported that the Glenwild Lake resident did not return home after visiting a friend's house on the lake. Several units began a search of the area and as the State Police Marine Service Bureau, Crime Scene North Unit, T.E.A.M.S Unit, and Bergen County Sheriff Department K-9 Unit continued the search Tuesday, the body was recovered.
Police said a follow-up investigation will be conducted by the Regional Medical Examiner in Newark.
