CHIPPEWA LAKE, OH - A male's body was recovered from Chippewa Lake, Tuesday afternoon after a kayaker noticed something in the water about 300 yards off shore.

The 911 call has been released to WMFD, where a kayaker stated that he found a body floating in the water. 

"We got a body floating out here." the kayaker said in the 911 call. 

The kayaker, Frank Webber, told WMFD that he thought it looked like a doll head but quickly discovered it was a body. "God brought me here today, and it was good that I found it. I hope that helps the people." Webber stated.

The Medina County Sheriff's Department, Lafayette Twp. Fire, Medina County Park Rangers, and Medina County Coroner Dr. Lisa Deranek recovered the body and sent it to the Cuyahoga Medical Examiner's Office for identification and testing. On Wednesday evening, February 22nd, it was identified as the missing Medina County Township Trustee, 45-year-old Bryon Macron.

Macron's wife and family have been notified. Further testing was conducted by the Cuyahoga Medical Examiner, but the results have not been made available at this time.

Macron was last seen on December 16, 2016. Blood was later found in his office where investigators believe there was an altercation.

The Medina County Sheriff's Office located Macron's vehicle several hours later in a public parking lot on Beachside Blvd in Chippewa. 

Missing person signs have lined the fence in the area that Macron's car was located in Chippewa Lake since December in hopes of the public's help. 

The body was located in the same area that law enforcement had been searching during the past few months.
