(Mattoon, IL) -- The search for a missing swimmer at Lake Mattoon in east-central Illinois meets a grim conclusion. Dive teams from three different counties assisted in yesterday's search for a man around 25 years old. The body of the unnamed victim was found early Sunday night several hours after he first disappeared. Witnesses said the man went underwater to retrieve an inflatable raft and simply never resurfaced.
