WEST BLOOMFIELD TWP., Mich. (WJBK) -

Authorities say they have recovered the body of a man who jumped off a boat and disappeared in an Oakland County lake.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as 21-year-old Lucas Zaima of Beverly Hills.

Sgt. Pat Hatfield says Dive Team members on Friday afternoon used a robotic camera equipped with sonar to locate Zaima's body in 90 feet of murky water.

Zaima was said to be on a friend's boat with six other people when he jumped into the water in the early morning hours.

Hatfield says police were notified and began their search around 1:30 a.m. He says alcohol is believed to be a factor in the drowning.

An autopsy is planned.

We'll have more on this story tonight during FOX 2 News beginning at 5 p.m.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
