Divers have recovered the body of a 21-year-old New Jersey man who drowned while swimming with family members at a lake in Middlesex County this weekend.

The victim, identified only as a Somerset County resident, was in Dallenbach Lake in East Brunswick on Saturday afternoon when he went under water and did not resurface. His relatives quickly notified lifeguards, who searched for the man but could not locate him.

Emergency crews soon arrived and searched the lake and nearby areas for several hours before suspending the search around 10:30 p.m. due to darkness. They returned to the lake early Sunday and found the body around 9:45 a.m.
