Coroner called to search in Lancaster County


LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — A body was found on Tuesday after reports for a missing 61-year-old man in Manor Township, Lancaster County.

Firefighters say the man never returned home last night and was known to frequently swim in the evenings at a nearby pond around Habecker Church and Central Manor roads.

Officials are concerned because the algae in the water would have made it dangerous to try to swim there. They were able to recover several items during the investigation near the pond and also found the man’s truck present.

The pond was drained, which led to the discovery of a body. The Lancaster County coroner will be conducting an autopsy.

A preliminary investigation has shown no evidence of foul play at this point in time.
