BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich. (AP) - Searchers have found the body of a 17-year-old Iowa boy in a lake in southwestern Michigan.

The Berrien County sheriff's department says that crews found the body of Tyler Albers about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in Berrien Springs.

The department says it got a call Monday evening about two swimmers having trouble in Lake Chapin off of Grove Park.

It says one 17-year-old swimmer made it out of the water and the other went under and didn't surface. Crews searched by boat before sending divers into the water, but the missing swimmer wasn't found.

Sheriff Paul Bailey says that Albers was from Minburn, Iowa, and was the nephew of Berrien County sheriff's Deputy Dave Albers.
