1 dead, search on for 2 missing Lake Mead boaters

LAS VEGAS — An official says a capsized boat and the body of one missing
Las Vegas man have been found in Lake Mead, and searchers are looking for two
other men who were with him on a multi-day outing.

National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover says the boat was found
about 11:30 a.m. Friday north of Gull Islands in the Colorado River reservoir
behind Hoover Dam.

The names of the men weren’t immediately made public.

Vanover says they were reported missing late Thursday by a family member who
said they hadn’t called in for the night.

Their vehicle was found at dawn Friday at Echo Bay.

Park Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife and Las Vegas police rescue crews
and divers are involved in the air and water search.
