OMAHA — Officials with the Omaha Fire Department say a body has been pulled from a lake on the city's northwestern edge, three days after crews pulled an SUV from the water.

The body has been identified as Daniel Foster, 26, of Wahoo. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said the submerged Chevrolet Trailblazer was registered in Foster's name.

Rescue crews responded Saturday night to a report of an SUV crashing into the water at 174th and Ida streets. Crews found the SUV submerged in the lake, but divers said a search of the vehicle and area around it did not turn up any victims.

The Sheriff's Department, which is investigating the crash, requested another search of the scene Tuesday afternoon. Officials say a diver found a body in the water a short time later.
