OAKDALE — Stanislaus County sheriff’s deputies were searching for a missing swimmer in Woodward Reservoir near Oakdale.
About 1:40 p.m., the sheriff’s department received 911 calls about a swimmer missing at the reservoir.
Crews with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department and Stanislaus Consolidated Fire searched the water and found the body of a 51-year-old man.
The man’s identity is not known.
A sheriff’s department spokesperson says the water this time of year is pretty high because of the wet winter Northern California had.
The man was not wearing a life jacket.
The Modesto Bee originally reported the missing swimmer was said to be a teenage boy, but the sheriff’s department later said a 51-year-old man was found in the water.
