Gilbert Phillips was fishing at Lake Morning Star near Luray Thursday when he drowned.

Friends last saw him around 1:30 p.m. when he attempted to swim 300 yards across the lake. Rescue teams found his body around 10 p.m. Thursday night.

The medical examiner is working on a toxicology report. Police do not suspect foul play at this time, but alcohol may be a factor.
