Searchers pulled a man's body from Lake Jacomo around 1:20 a.m. Monday after searching for several hours. 

Officials received several 911 calls around 5:15 p.m. Sunday. A man in his 50s was on a rental boat when the group decided to swim in the lake. The man went into the water and failed to resurface. 

Deputies with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office had help from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and its sonar equipment. 

The lake is located southeast of the junction of Interstate-70 and I-470 between Blue Springs and Lee's Summit.
