Monday, Maricopa County Sheriff's divers headed back to the area where a former Cubs player disappeared Sunday afternoon.

Officials say Frank Castillo was on a pontoon boat with a friend when he decided to go for a swim.  After Castillo went into the water, he never resurfaced.

The person who called 911 stated the man was not a good swimmer.

Deputies searched the area for about two hours, but called off the search because it got too dark.

The search resumed Monday and the 44-year-old's body was recovered about 2:30 p.m.

Bartlett Lake is about 60 miles northeast of downtown Phoenix. Castillo owned a home in Arizona.
