Body found in Fulton County lake

Authorities in Fulton County say they found a body in a lake after searching over parts of two days.

The Copperas Creek Fire Protection District says crews were first called to Rice Lake southeast of Canton Saturday afternoon for a report of a person in the water. After crews from multiple departments were called to assist in the search via land, water, and air, it was suspended Saturday night. But after about an hour and a half of searching again on Sunday, a body was found.

The body was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the person found has not yet been released.

Authorities say they are not yet releasing any more details.
