By Beacon Staff

POLSON — Officials in Lake County say a 36-year-old Huson man whose body was recovered from Flathead Lake late last month died of accidental drowning.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Karen Sargeant announced that officials at the State Crime Lab are still awaiting the toxicology tests on Nathan Bird.

Bird was reported missing on Aug. 25 after his boat was found adrift on the lake. Searchers using sonar recovered his body in about 77 feet of water four days later.
