Chief: Man Appears to Have Drowned Accidentally

Body recovered Tuesday.

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.

Patch will have updates on this story.

My heart goes out to Kevin's family. This is just so sad. Kevin was my nephew and I remember him mostly as a little baby and young boy. Such a beautiful baby and child. I am so deeply saddened by this and my prayers and thoughts are with the family. May God be with you always during this trying time. Johanne Palermo

I didn't know him very well, but the one important thing that I do remember, he was always smiling. Additionally, a very gentle, kind person. He was taken way too early from us. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and his entire family. God bless all of you. Jody DiMarcello ~95 SHS
