A short search at Sky View Lake in Powell County came to an unfortunate end Sunday night.
The Powell County coroner says around 7 Sunday night, a 22 year-old man and his family were fishing on the lake off Upper Paint Creek road.
Authorities say the man reached into the water to grab something and he fell in. He never resurfaced.
After a quick search by boat once rescue teams arrived, his body was recovered.
At this time the man's name has not been released. His body has been taken to Frankfort for an autopsy.
