WALWORTH COUNTY, Wis. — The search has resumed on a southern Wisconsin lake for a fourth Illinois man missing since the weekend.

Crews have recovered the bodies of three men from the icy waters of Mill Lake in Walworth County since the four were reported missing Sunday.

Two bodies were found shortly after the search began. A third was recovered Monday afternoon at the lake about 35 miles southeast of Milwaukee.

Authorities say the four were reported missing after their friends staying at a lake house awoke Sunday and discovered footprints in the snow leading to a boathouse and an overturned canoe in the water.
