LODI (AP) — Authorities say the body of a 47-year-old Lodi man who was reported missing Monday has been found in Lake Wisconsin in Columbia County.

The state Department of Natural Resources said in a news release Tuesday that Columbia County officials have identified the man as Rahn Ripp.

He was last seen Sunday evening driving a UTV away from an establishment on the lake. The DNR says it appears Ripp was driving the UTV on the ice when it broke through. A county dive team found Ripp's body inside the vehicle.

The agency says authorities are still investigating the incident.
