OGALLALA, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities have released the name of a man whose body was recovered from Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska.

He’s been identified as a police officer, Joseph Teeter, who’d served with the Denver Police Department for 11 years.

His body was recovered Sunday about 2 miles (3 kilometers) west of Van’s Lakeview.

The body had been secured by two anglers.

Authorities say Teeter had left a boat to go swimming but was unable to return.
