STRAFFORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Dive Team recovered the body of Allan Schuh, 62, of Plymouth, Massachusetts from Bow Lake this morning.

Schuh had been reported missing by his wife the previous day after he did not return home from a fishing trip.

Schuh’s body was found approximately 15 feet off shore in approximately 8 feet of water.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, but Schuh was not wearing a life jacket.

Assisting in the search were Marine Patrol, New Hampshire State Police, Strafford Police and Fire Departments, Barrington Police Department, Rochester Fire Department, and Barnstead Fire Department.

New Hampshire Fish and Game and Marine Patrol remind all boaters that water temperatures are still cold and state law requires each boater to have a wearable life jacket with them whenever recreating on New Hampshire’s waterbodies.

In addition, children ages 12 and younger must wear a life jacket at all times.
