CINCINNATI (WLWT) – Fire and rescue crews in northern Kentucky recovered a body Sunday evening after searching Bullock Pen Lake.

Crittenden Fire and Rescue Chief Lee Burton says they were initially called around 2:00p.m. for a water rescue after a man went over the back of a fishing boat.

Fire officials estimate the water is about 60 to 80 feet deep in that area.

Burton says they searched a popular spot for fishing on the lake between Catlett Lane and Alexander Lane. They found the body of a man in his 50’s.

Grant County EMA, Dry Ridge EMS, and the Williamstown Dive Team are also assisted in the search.

Crews are attempting to notify family members.
