Authorities have identified a man who drowned in the Peshtigo River flowage in Marinette County.

Twenty-year-old Michael Two Rivers-Broeffle was swimming with two other men Saturday when he went under water near the Caldron Falls dam and disappeared.

Wisconsin Public Service dam operators lowered the water level to aid in the search for the man. Press-Gazette Media says divers recovered his body Saturday night.
