ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - Police have released the identity of a missing boater whose body was found in a central Florida lake.

Altamonte Springs police identified the boater Sunday as David Ball of Deltona.

Another boater, Eugene Nathan of Sanford, was able to swim to shore.

Neither had been wearing a life jacket while fishing early Sunday morning on Lake Adelaide.

Police say Nathan and Ball moved within the boat causing it to become unbalanced and capsize.

Both tried to swim to shore, but Ball never made it.

Nathan swam to a dock and called for help.

Search and rescue efforts were under way when Balls body was
recovered from the bottom of the lake.

An investigation continues.
