Crews have recovered the body of a Vermont man who went missing after he jumped off a cliff into Lake Champlain and never resurfaced.

Police say Michael Mindell, 39, of Shelburne, was boating with friends Saturday when they stopped at Palisades Cliffs in Westport, N.Y. Mindell climbed part way up the cliff face and jumped into the lake, but never resurfaced. Crews located his body late Monday evening.

New York State Police, the U.S. Coast Guard and local authorities had been searching for his body since Saturday.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
