MONTEZUMA (AP) — Search teams have found the body of a man whose ATV broke through the ice at Lake Ponderosa.

The Des Moines Register reports divers found the body of 57-year-old David Hartke, of Grundy Center, on Tuesday after rolling over his vehicle underwater, which had been on its roof. The discovery ends what had been four days of searching for Hartke, who fell through a weak spot in the ice while ice fishing with a friend.
