The body of a man who went missing in Chautauqua Lake over the weekend has been found.

Recovery crews discovered the body of 48-year old Ricky Whipple Thursday morning, approximately 200 yards off shore, north of the Chautauqua Institution.

Whipple was tubing along the northwest side of the lake on Sunday, when his tube flipped and he was thrown off.

Whipple was not wearing a life jacket at the time.
