FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - The body of a missing windsurfer was found on Lake Winnebago Saturday evening over an hour and half after his rig washed up on shore.   

Fond du Lac County sheriff's officials the body of a 71-year-old Sheboygan Falls man was found around 6:10 p.m. by employees with a windsurfing company. 

The sheriff’s department says the man’s body was found about 300 yards from shore.  Sheriff's deputies removed the body from the water and paramedics determined he was deceased.

A call about a missing windsurfer came in at 4:30 p.m. after his rig washed ashore near Roosevelt Park.  The park is located at the southern end of Lake Winnebago in Fond du Lac. His name is not being released at this time. Officials say he was not wearing a personal flotation device.
