The body of 16-year-old Dalton Gustinis has been recovered from Whitefish Lake.
A Lieutenant with the Montcalm County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that crews found Gustinis around 2p.m. Saturday.
According to a news release from the Montcalm County Sheriff's Office, crews using sonar located the teenager in 32 feet of water.  Divers removed the body a short time later.
16-year old Dalton Gustinis (and) two friends were fishing in a small, flat bottom boat around midnight.

The boat started taking on water. They all tried to swim back to shore. Two of them made it. Dalton did not. His brother, Jake Ellis, thinks Dalton was wearing heavy clothing. "He likes to wear boots. He had steel toe boots on when he got off boat. We know he had them on, because he always wears them."
