Authorities say drowning apparently caused the death of a man whose body was found in a southern New Jersey waterway this week.

Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain says 45-year-old Charles Carley of Waterford was found Monday morning in Hammonton Lake.

He had been reported missing by family members on Friday, one day after he was last seen alive.

Further details about the death were not disclosed Tuesday, including how authorities believe Carley ended up in the water or how long the body may have been in the lake.
