Authorities have found the body of a Cleveland firefighter who went missing for more than a week after swimming in Lake Erie.

The Ohio Division of Watercraft says the body of 44-year-old Kenneth "Mike" Alderman was found Monday off Lorain. The location is about 20 miles east of where he disappeared near Sandusky on July 19.

The division says Alderman jumped off a recreational boat to swim and wasn't wearing a life jacket.

The Lorain County coroner is examining the body.
