WORCESTER (CBS) — After nearly four hours of searching, dive teams found the body of a missing man in the waters off Regatta Point Park in Worcester Wednesday. His body was discovered about 60 feet out from the shores of Lake Quinsigamond.

Worcester Police were called about his disappearance just before 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. Someone told police that they saw the man walk towards the lake. Police say he was 68 years old and had dementia.

The Worcester Fire Department said it is still unclear why he went into the water, and have not confirmed yet that his mental state was the reason he went in.

The man’s name has not yet been released. Staff
