HOLTS SUMMIT, Missouri — A central Missouri sheriff's department is investigating the death of a 55-year-old man whose body was discovered in a lake.

Callaway County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Clay Chism says the department got a call at 10:21 p.m. Tuesday about a suspicious vehicle on private property south of Holts Summit.

The Columbia Daily Tribune ( ) reports that soon after that call, a resident found the body of Mark Wenkel of Holts Summit in a nearby lake.

Chism says no foul play is suspected at this time.

Wenkel's body was taken to the medical examiner's office in Columbia for an autopsy that was scheduled to be done Wednesday.

Results of a toxicology screen aren't expected for several weeks.
