A Sonora man´s body was pulled out of New Melones Lake this morning. 75-year-old Louis Kosina Sr. was found dead this morning just after 4 a.m.

Lt. John Steely in the Tuolumne County Sheriff´s office says they received a call around 8 p.m. Monday from a member of Kosina´s family, who said that he had not come back from fishing at the lake. The Sheriff´s Department searched all night with two boats until the body was found early this morning near the Tuttletown launch ramp. Kosina´s boat was found about “a quarter of a mile away,” Steely said.

It´s not clear exactly how he died. Kosina was wearing a life jacket.
