The body of a Columbiana man was pulled from Little Beaver Creek Tuesday in East Liverpool.

A search and rescue team found Jim Smith, 66, just after 8 a.m. in Beaver Creek State Park.

Smith had been fishing but went missing around 9 p.m. Monday.

Emergency crews searched the water as his wife and other family members waited in a parking lot.

His body was eventually pulled from the water near Ware Road.

Police said foul play is not suspected.
