MONROE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a person has died while swimming in a water-filled former stone quarry in southeastern Michigan.

Monroe Township fire Chief Larry Merkle tells the Monroe News that the Monroe County sheriff's dive team recovered the person's body on Thursday from the lake.

Authorities launched a search earlier in the day following reports that a swimmer was believed to have gone underwater at the former France quarry. State police say three teens had been out swimming. The person's name wasn't immediately released.

The death is under investigation.
