Police say four bodies have been recovered after canoeists were reported missing in southeastern Wisconsin.

Authorities say four people went out in a canoe around 3 a.m. Sunday on Mill Lake in Walworth County. The search began after friends noticed they hadn't come back.

Town of East Troy Police Chief Jim Surges tells WITI-TV (http://bit.ly/1JS2tkG ) that three bodies were recovered quickly, while the fourth body was recovered by divers. A canoe was also found.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is leading the investigation.

Mill Lake is about 35 miles southwest of Milwaukee.
