DENVILLE - Police say they have recovered the body of the missing volunteer firefighter who was last seen swimming in Cook's Pond in Denville.

Joseph Arcoleo had been training for the upcoming Denville Triathlon. Lifeguards saw him swimming in the pond Friday night, but later noticed he was missing and that his car and personal items were still at the beach.

The discovery sparked an intense search for the Denville resident. State police brought in sonar and specialized search equipment to search for Arcoleo.

The upcoming triathlon that Arcoleo was training for takes place in and around the pond where he went missing.
