The Butler County Coroner's Office Wednesday identified a man whose body was found in Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park.

Nick Sopel, 62, of Lyndora had been missing since Nov. 14, when his car was found near the Route 422 bridge that spans Lake Arthur.

Park rangers, state police, the Butler County water rescue team, volunteer firefighters and emergency workers searched the area nearby without success for several days.

Sopel was found Tuesday with the use of an underwater camera donated to the park by his family to aid in the search for him. Crews spotted his fully clothed body in about 8 feet of water. The cause and manner of Sopel's death are pending.
