TEMPE, AZ — Police say they have located the body of a man who went into the water at Tempe Town Lake Friday and did not resurface.

Officials say they received a call regarding a man who was seen running into the lake Friday afternoon. Later that night authorities called off the search due to it being so dark.

On Saturday morning, the Tempe Fire rescue dive team continued searching the water and eventually located the body of 35-year-old Aaron Lee Yazzi.

Police have not released any additional information about the circumstances of Yazzi entering the water.

The incident remains under investigation.
