Police divers have located a man's body in a dam in the Scenic Rim. 
The man in his sixties and his wife were fishing at Lake Wyaralong yesterday, when they got into difficulty while trying to reel in a fish. 
The man dived in after he lost his fishing rod and failed to resurface.
His partner then  waded out to look for him and also got into trouble with another person bringing her back to safety.
A report is being prepared for the coroner.
