LAKE WALLENPAUPACK — Search teams in Pike County recovered the body of a missing boater in Lake Wallenpaupack.

Dive officials came across the remains of 24-year-old Ben Culton, 24, of Montgomery County, around 12:30 Sunday afternoon.

According to friends, Culton was visiting the lake for the first time Friday when he and six others took two boats out on the water before midnight.

The boats tipped with one flipping over. Six people were able to make it back to the shore but Culton did not.
