Vacaville man's body recovered from lake

CLEAR LAKE – The Lake County Sheriff's Office reported Tuesday afternoon that they had recovered the body of a Vacaville man who went missing in the lake Saturday evening.


A report from LCSO Lt. Cecil Brown said that 44-year-old John Leon Stockton, was found at noon.


Search and Rescue members and the North Shore Dive Team had been searching for Stockton since Saturday evening, after it was reported that he fell from the back of his boat and into the water, and didn't resurface.


They were joined in the efforts by Tom Tessier of Santa Rosa-based Aqua-Tec Inc., a company that operates sophisticated sonar equipment, Brown reported.


With Tessier's help, dive team members found Stockton's body underwater, Brown said, and later positively identified him.


Brown said Stockton's family was notified of his recovery Tuesday afternoon.


LCSO has initiated a coroner's investigation into the cause of Stockton's death, Brown said. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
