The Marinette County Sheriff's Office says its dive team found the man inside the truck Saturday morning at the bottom of the lake. WBAY-TV reports the man was identified as Herbert C. Lax Jr.

Authorities say they began searching for Lax Friday night after a fisherman called to report a patch of open water on the lake and a floating cooler. Search crews found Lax with the help of an underwater camera from an air boat.
