Cheyenne Police say an eerie photo resembling a body in Lake Absarraca is nothing more than an "optical illusion."

Officer Kevin Malatesta says an ice fisherman called police on December 10 after taking a photo of what looked like a human face under the ice.

"Our officers responded along with the Laramie County Sheriff's Department," said Malatesta. "They walked out there with the fisherman onto the ice to check and they were unable to find anything resembling a human body or human remains."

Malatesta says it appears the photo "was an optical illusion created by the ice."

"That's most likely what the fisherman saw," said Malatesta. "We haven't received any further calls about suspicious circumstances, remains or anything like that at Lake Absarraca."
