The body of a man was recovered Tuesday night from Wyandotte County Lake.

The body was described as a white male about 58 years old.

Officials said someone called authorities Tuesday night to report the body. It was discovered after 8 p.m. on the east side of the 400-acre lake, about two miles from the park entrance, said Lt. Kelli Bailiff. The park is at 91st Street and Leavenworth Road.

Officials had just begun to investigate but were treating it as a crime scene.
