Body of 56-year-old woman pulled from Plover lakeSubmitted: 04/17/2015
PLOVER - Police pulled the body of a 56-year-old Plover woman out of a lake in Plover Friday night, according to the Plover Police Department.

Emergency crews were dispatched to Lake Pacawa at 5:23 p.m. The Plover Police Department says the body of 56-year-old Betty J. Frost appeared to have been in the water for a considerable amount of time.

Family members were contacted and have been notified.

Investigation to this point does not believe foul play is involved. Investigators are waiting for information from the Portage County Coroner's office to determine a cause of death.

Police says there is no reason for the public to be concerned for their safety, but they remind everyone to follow safe practices when around any body of water.
