GASTONIA, N.C. -- A fisherman's body was recovered from Robinwood Lake early Thursday morning, but officials said no foul play caused the death. 

Gaston County emergency officials said they received a call about a missing fisherman on Robinwood Lake around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

A family member reported Robert Scott Dula, 36, missing after they could not find him after several hours of searching.

Emergency crews responded to Robinwood Lake and launched a boat.  

They found Dula’s boat on shore and shortly before daybreak located Dula's body near the boat in the water.

Authorities have ruled the incident an accidental drowning.
