LAKE WASHINGTON — A 45-year-old man apparently drowned in Lake Washington some time Thursday evening or Friday morning.

Deputies had responded to a call reporting a person was missing from a residence on the southwest shore of the lake. Family members told deputies Noy had left the residence about 6 p.m. Thursday. He was on a pontoon boat headed to the Westwood Bar and Grill.

When Noy did not return to the residence, family members began a search. They found the unmanned pontoon floating in weeds along the shoreline.

Responding deputies searched near the pontoon and a dock until they found Noy’s body in waters about 26 inches deep.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner Office will perform an autopsy.
