(Minong, WI) -- Lac du Flambeau tribal police aren't confirming the body pulled from a lake in Vilas County is a missing man, but the missing person alert for Monserrate Roche has been canceled.

Searchers were looking for Roche when the body was found in Pokegama Lake at about 10:00 A-M Thursday. Investigators are working on a formal identification. Authorities say they are ruling nothing out, but they say there's no evidence which would indicate the person died under suspicious circumstances. Roche was reported missing from his home in Lac du Flambeau last week.
