TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department has recovered the body of a man who reportedly dove into Tempe Town Lake late Wednesday night.

A little after 8 p.m., 911 received a report of someone who may have jumped off the bridge over Tempe Town Lake, said Tempe fire spokesman Hans Silberschlag.

A rescue crew and dive team responded, along with a helicopter to search for the reported person.

A witness stated that a bike was thrown over the bridge and the person jumped in after it.

The dive team did find a bike, however, they are not sure if it belongs to the person or is just another random bike in Tempe Town Lake, said Silberschlag.

Rescue crews reconvened their Thursday morning after 8 a.m. and found the man's body just before 10 a.m.

The investigation is ongoing.
