By Beacon Staff

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK – The body of a missing Hungry Horse man has been recovered from a lake in Glacier National Park.

The Flathead County sheriff’s dive team used a remote-controlled sub Friday to locate the body of 30-year-old Michael W. Sloan, who had been missing since failing to return from a Tuesday afternoon fishing trip north of Lake McDonald.

Authorities found Sloan’s truck near Upper McDonald Creek. On Wednesday, a fishing pole that family members identified as Sloan’s was found where the creek empties into Lake McDonald.

Sloan’s body was recovered at about noon Friday about 65 feet below the surface and about 200 yards from shore.
