LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A 34-year-old man has been found dead in a western Ohio lake after authorities say he crashed his snowmobile near the shore.

Montezuma fire officials tell The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1dEyJpY) that Dale Bruns of St. Henry went missing after he left a bar around midnight Saturday.

An extensive search involving nearly 90 personnel from seven agencies ensued.

At about 10 a.m. Saturday, a team with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources spotted Bruns' snowmobile helmet floating in the open waters of Grand Lake St. Marys, about 30 miles southwest of Lima.

His body was found soon after.

Last month, a 44-year-old Gary Jenkins of Norwalk in northern Ohio was killed when the snowmobile he was riding south of Sandusky hit a culvert and threw him.
