State Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Bob Considine says 71-year-old Koon Fung was found dead in the Round Valley Reservoir in Clinton early Monday. He says State Park police were notified of a missing person by the Toms River police on Sunday night.

Considine says the Toms River man apparently left his home to swim or wade in the reservoir.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
