The U.S. Coast Guard says it has pulled a body from Lake Erie near a fishing area on Cleveland’s east side.

The Coast Guard says the body was spotted Saturday afternoon at the Intercity Yacht Club and apparently had been in the water for quite a while.

A Coast Guard spokesman said Cleveland police received a 911 call around 3 p.m. Saturday and asked Cleveland firefighters and the Coast Guard for assistance in recovering the body.

The body was transferred to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office for further investigation.

Authorities say the body did not appear to match any previous search reports.
