An Aurora man was found dead in a Biwabik Township lake on Thursday.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office reported that Elmer Willman, 77, was removed from Silver Lake by the Sheriff’s Rescue Squad after it was reported around 7 p.m. that a deceased man had been found in the lake.

Willman had last been seen on Sunday by a neighbor, according to the Sheriff’s Office, and family members searched for him on Thursday. A family member found his body near his canoe.

The incident does not appear to be suspicious, but the investigation is continuing.
