CARY, N.C. (WNCN) – First responders recovered a body from Lake Lochmere in Cary’s Lochmere neighborhood on Wednesday after a person was seen going into the water, town officials said.

Cary police and firefighters are at the 400-block of Lochmere Drive with at least one crew in a boat searching the water.

A Town of Cary official told CBS 17 that a drowning call came in at 9:28 a.m. after a witness reported seeing a person enter the water and not come back out.

A witness told a CBS 17 crew at the scene that he helped get a man out of the water but that the man then jumped back in, swam a short distance, and didn’t resurface.

The lake is located between Kildaire Farm Road and SE Cary Parkway.

Crews recovered the body around 11 a.m.
