According to the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, Andrew Stifter’s body has been recovered from the lake.

Crews had previously suspended their search for Stifter due to unsafe conditions.

Stifter had gone out on the lake Nov. 26 to take pictures of wildlife from his paddle board. When his absence was realized, crews began their search.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Andrew’s pregnant wife and two kids.

The Sheriff’s Office says his body was recovered Tuesday afternoon after being discovered by an ice fisherman.
