OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Oshkosh police say a body has been recovered from a vehicle submerged in Lake Winnebago.

Police say they were notified Monday that there was damage to the railing at the Bowen Street fishing dock, indicating a vehicle may have plunged into the lake.

Oshkosh Fire Department divers did an initial search, but didn't find anything. The Winnebago County Sheriff's Department divers were called, did a search with sonar and found the vehicle and the body.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office is conducting an autopsy.
