Authorities find missing fisherman in NC lake

Posted: Updated:

Officials say a body found in Belews Lake has been identified as a missing fisherman.

A medical examiner at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center identified the body pulled from the lake early Tuesday as that of 44-year-old James Pascual Bohenstiel of Kernersville.

Bohenstiel and 27-year-old Jacob Allen Line of Kernersville had been missing since April 17 when they did not return home from a fishing trip.

Stokes County officials are still trying to fine Line's body.

The medical examiner said Bohenstiel drowned and there was no foul play.

A Rockingham County reserve deputy found the body in a part of the lake that ranges between 20 and 100 feet deep. More than 400 people have taken part in the search.
