Bodies Recovered from Lake 16 Jan 12

Authorities have released the names of the two snowmobilers whose bodies were recovered yesterday afternoon (Sunday) from a Wright County Lake.

They’re identified as 20-year-old Bradley Skafte of Buffalo and 19-year-old Adam Patnode, of Corcoran.

Authorities recovered the bodies from Lake Charlotte after witnesses said they went through the ice late Saturday.

Wright County Sheriff Joe Hagerty says they used sonar to find the bodies.

Sheriff Hagerty says the men were found at the bottom of the lake, in about 45 feet of water.

They were apparently heading to a friend’s cabin when they hit open water on the lake.
