PHOENIX – Two swimmers went missing at Phoenix-area lakes over the Memorial Day weekend, and searchers have recovered one body as of Monday, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said.
It was the sixth weekend in a row the agency responded to a missing swimmer call at Lake Pleasant in Peoria.
The swimmer, a man who wasn’t wearing a life vest, went into the lake around 11 a.m. on Saturday, but didn’t resurface, authorities said.
The search for him continues, they said.
