HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- The body of a man who had reportedly gone fishing has been recovered from a creek in western Maryland.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown ( ) says authorities on Thursday recovered the body of 25-year- old Corey Adam Clopein, of Hagerstown, from a shallow section of Conococheague Creek.

The Washington County sheriff's office, which is investigating, does not suspect foul play. A concerned family member who had not heard from Clopein in a while found him. Deputies were told Clopein had left to go fishing, and he had what was believed to be fishing equipment with him.

An autopsy is being done to establish the cause of death.
