A Terre Du Lac resident died on Wednesday in a drowning incident within the lake development community.
According to Terre Du Lac Fire Chief Dave Rohlic, 79-year-old Ron Missey was attempting to retrieve his boat, which had broken loose from a dock on Lac Shayne Wednesday afternoon.
The chief said Missey was using a canoe to reach his drifting boat when the accident occurred.
The drowning was reported about 5 p.m. after a 15-year-old boy, who was walking his dog in the area, noticed the victim’s body floating near a dock behind a residence on Minda Rae Court.
The man was discovered approximately three houses away from his property, according to the chief.
