Okanogan County deputies recovered the body of a missing man at the bottom of Lake Conconully.

Christopher Campbell was reported missing Tuesday.

Law enforcement and volunteers searched the area around the lake Wednesday.

Broken tree limbs near the upriver reservoir of the lake tipped off one of the searchers. The sheriff s office believes Campbell likely missed a turn on a dirt road. Campbell s vehicle went down a 40-foot embankment and into the lake.

Authorities found the body inside the vehicle under 12 feet of water. They pulled out the vehicle around 4 p.m.
