A missing Massachusetts man has been found dead.

According to Massachusetts State Police, at approximately 8:30 a.m. today, a DCR Ranger at the Quabbin Reservoir observed a body in the lower section of the Reservoir’s spillway, approximately 20 feet from shore.

Divers from the Massachusetts State Police responded and recovered the deceased adult male. Investigators from the Sturbridge Police Department and the State Police subsequently confirmed the deceased to be George Guttler, 71, of Sturbridge, who was reported missing by his family on March 11.
