Drowning victim found

Retired Ely businessman Mike Weinzierl, 75, died of an apparent drowning after his body was found Tuesday afternoon in Fall Lake.
Weinzierl had left his home on Fall Lake Monday for a day fishing trip via motor boat to Basswood Lake. He didn't return home that night and his family believed he may have camped out after experiencing motor troubles on Jackfish Bay.
Lake County authorities received a call at 8:17 p.m. Monday night that Weinzierl was missing.
