OWATONNA, MN (AP) - Steele County authorities are investigating a drowning on Lake Kohlmier in Owatonna in southern Minnesota.
 
Police responded to a report of a missing swimmer just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.
 
The Owatonna People's Press reports (http://bit.ly/N49HJM) authorities say the young adult male victim was not a resident of Steele County. The coroner's office was still working on a positive identification Thursday, and the family has not been notified yet.
 
The coroner's office says the autopsy results were consistent with an accidental drowning, and drugs and alcohol were not a factor.
