PHOENIX – Search crews recovered the body of a man who apparently drowned while swimming in Lake Pleasant on Sunday, authorities said.

Neria Aranbayev, 20, was found dead about 20 feet below the surface of the northwest Valley lake, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning.

There were no signs of foul play, MCSO said.

Aranbayev had been swimming in the Agua Fria arm of Lake Pleasant on Sunday afternoon when he went under the water and didn’t resurface.

He’d made his way from a boat to shore and was heading back to the boat when he went under.

No other details were made available.
