The body of a Durham fisherman who drowned Sunday was found Tuesday morning.

Authorities said search and recovery teams found the body of 55-year-old Carnell Bell in approximately 60 feet of water.

Bell and another man were fishing in the lake when their canoe capsized around 9:30 a.m. in the 1300 block of Orange Factory Road. The other man was rescued by a nearby boater who went into the water to help.

Deputies said neither man was wearing a life jacket.
