Divers Find Body In Lake Flanagan

Divers found a body in the water at Lake Flanagan near 174th and Ida Tuesday afternoon.  That's the lake where a car was found submerged on Saturday.

Douglas County Sheirff's Deputies observed a broken guardrail, tire tracks and a hole in the ice a few feet from the shoreline. The Omaha Fire Department was called to assist. Divers assisted in locating a white 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and it was pulled from the water. 

No one was found inside the Trailblazer. The vehicle was registered to 26 year old Daniel Foster of Wahoo.  A search of the surrounding area, including air support from an Omaha Police helicopter, turned up nothing. Due to conditions in the lake at that time, further efforts to search the water were suspended. 

The sheriff's office called the Omaha Fire Department back to the water on Tuesday at 1 p.m.  Divers entered the water around 1:00 and within minutes discovered a body and investigators say the body is believed to be Foster's.  

 An autopsy has been scheduled for Wednesday.  The circumstances leading up to the car being found in the lake are currently under investigation.
