HOLLAND, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Lucas County Coroner's Office says a body pulled from a Springfield Township lake on Tuesday is that of 19-year-old Mustafa Naserdeen.

Search crews say the body has been recovered from a lake in the Hidden Harbour subdivision. Crews had been searching the lake since a man went missing on Sunday.

Police say Naserdeen ended up in the water while boating on a pontoon boat Sunday evening. Naserdeen was a recent graduate of Maumee High School.

Deputy Lucas Coutny Coroner Dr. Diane Barnett says Naserdeen drowned.  Dr. Barnett says there was no sign of skeletal damage and no sign of cuts or injuries. 

However, Dr. Barnett says no cause of death has been established because investigation has not shown whether Naserdeen was pushed, jumped or fell off a pontoon boat. 

Barnett says alcohol was a factor in his death, although she has no blood alcohol level to report yet.  According to Barnett, there were several other boys in their late teen aboard the pontoon boat and they have different stories about what happened Sunday evening.  She says no one aboard the pontoon boat was wearing a life jacket, including the deceased.

Dr. Barnett says the Ohio Division of Watercraft and the Lucas County Sheriff's Department continues to interview those aboard the board.
