This is pretty sad.

Deputies recover Illinois kitesurfer's body from Wisconsin lake

JEFFERSON, Wis. (AP) An Illinois man was found dead Tuesday after kitesurfing on Lake Koshkonong.

Deputies found the body of Jeffrey S. Meissner, 40, of Huntley, Ill., early Tuesday morning. He had been reported missing about 8 p.m. Monday by someone who said he might be kitesurfing on the lake, according to a news release from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies found Meissner's car parked on the lake's north shore and a sail and surfboard on the southeast side of the lake. Rock County deputies and Milton firefighters, who were helping in the search, found Meissner's body about 2 a.m.

The Jefferson County coroner pronounced Meissner dead at the scene. An autopsy will be done to determine how he died.
