Search resumes for 2 missing Lake Mead boaters

LAS VEGAS — Authorities are resuming their search for two missing Las
Vegas men a day after the body of a third man who was with them was found in
Lake Mead.

National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said officials are
conducting a search on land, sea and in the air Saturday.

Searchers plan to go through 7 miles of land on both sides of the shore.

Authorities said all three men, who were on a multi-day boating trip, were
reported missing late Thursday by a family member who said they hadn’t called in
for the night.

Their capsized boat was discovered around 11:30 a.m. Friday in the Colorado
River reservoir behind Hoover Dam.

Vanover said the body of one of the men, whose identity hasn’t been released,
was discovered a half-mile away.
