AVON, OH (WOIO) -

Avon Police are investigating a drowning at Willoway Nursery.

According to the Lorain County Coroner's Office, 51-year-old George Tesmer's body was found in a small pond on the property.

Tesmer is known to fish at the pond often, but on Saturday night after he didn't return, his family went to search for him. The coroner says his car was found by the pond so a dive team was called in to assist.

Tesmer's body was recovered Sunday morning.

The death appears to be accidental, but an investigation has been launched.
