Ramirez was last seen June 29 and was listed as a missing person, police said.

His body was found Tuesday between Fountain Lake and Albert Lea Lake by a fisherman.

“At that time it was determined that there was an absence of trauma to the remains indicating a lack of foul play,” police said.

"The Albert Lea Police Department extends our deepest sympathies to the Ramirez family."
