The body of a man who was reported missing in Co Fermanagh’s Lough Erne on Sunday has been found.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has confirmed that the body of a man was recovered from the lake on Monday evening.
The deceased was named as 31-year-old Kenny Andrews. Mr Andrews was from Bangor and was the managing director of Newtownards-based company Damp Proofing NI.
A postmortem of the body is due to take place. However, police are not treating the death as suspicious.
Police, lifeboat rescue services and the Irish Coast Guard were involved in a search of Lough Erne on Sunday and Monday following an incident with a jet-ski in the area of Muckross Bay. One man was rescued from the water on Sunday evening as part of the search.
A spokesman for the RNLI said both the Enniskillen and Carrybridge branches of the lifeboat services were requested to launch their boats and water crafts on Sunday evening following reports of a person in the water.
“Enniskillen RNLI was already on the lough at the time having responded to a separate callout,” said the spokesman. “The first person was swimming to shore when rescued by a boat that was passing by.”
Mr Andrews’s fiancée and family have expressed their thanks to the emergency services who were involved in the search for him.
