A northeastern Wisconsin man apparently drowned in a Sawyer County lake Sunday.

Divers found the body of 68-year old Thomas McNalley in Moose Lake at about 1 p.m. A 911 caller had reported him missing about two hours earlier.

According to the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office, McNally had been staying at a resort on the lake with his family. He was out on a pontoon boat when he decided to swim to shore but began having complications and was unable to stay afloat.

McNalley’s body was found in the area where he was last seen.
