Searchers have recovered the body of a 64-year-old Canadian man who is believed to have drowned in a small lake at Glacier National Park.

The National Park Service says rangers received a report about 4:30 p.m. yesterday of a man struggling in Pray Lake and then going under water.

Witnesses reported that it appeared the man may have gone into the lake to retrieve a dog. A dog has been found dead.

Rangers dove into the lake but were unable to find the man. Rangers and others searched until dark without finding him, and the search resumed this morning.
