Sad news to report. The body of a young man was recovered from Green Lake Sunday morning, according to the Seattle Times. At 9:39 a.m. Sunday, more than a dozen first responders were called to Meridian Ave N/East Green Lake Drive for a water rescue response. If you were in the area, you likely heard the slew of sirens. According to the Seattle Times article, the Seattle Police have not identified the young man but will release the identity after an investigation.

However, this comes at the same time that a 20-year-old man went missing. Taiga B. Hinckley was last seen taking a kayak into Green Lake the evening of July 4th to see the fireworks and was reported missing later that night. His capsized kayak was recovered near The Cove. According to Reddit and other comments on Facebook, Taiga spent a lot of time at Green Lake and worked at the Green Lake Boat House.
