RUSSELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Officials in Russell County said Monday that a body recovered from Lake Cumberland was found near where a missing man’s truck was found.

The Russell County Sheriff’s Department say the body was discovered Sunday night by a maintenance worker near where a pickup truck belonging to Danny Hatter was found March 31. Hatter’s family had reported him missing earlier in the month.

The sheriff says Russell County Coroner Michael Reynolds recovered the body along with a crew from the Russell County Rescue Squad.

Authorities say the body is being sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Frankfort for an autopsy and positive identification.
