Divers from the New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game have recovered the body of a 47-year-old man reported missing in Country Pond in Kingston.

Police and the New Hampshire Marine Patrol were called at about 5:20 p.m. Saturday after receiving a report that an adult male had attempted to swim about 150 yards from the mainland to a nearby island, but failed to arrive.

Rescue personnel conducted an extensive search Saturday until they were forced to suspend operations at dark.
