Search for Sisters resident ends when his body is recovered from Suttle Lake.

The search for Ben Hendrickson, 33, of Sisters, who disappeared Aug. 12, at Suttle Lake, ended Aug. 22, when his body was recovered from the lake, according to information from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

"No foul play was suspected, and alcohol is suspected to be a factor in this tragic drowning," said Sheriff Jim Adkins.

Hendrickson had been kayaking late Aug. 12, near Blue Bay Campground when he was last seen. Jefferson County Search and Rescue teams searched for 10 days on land and with dive teams in the lake without success, until finding his body on Aug. 22.
