Body of missing man found in Lake Mead


The body of a 22-year-old man reported missing at Lake Mead was found Thursday morning in 75 feet of water near the Lake Mead Marina.

Wilmer Morales was reported missing May 5 after he went into the lake and never returned from the water.

Search operations involved using a remote operated underwater vehicle with sonar and a camera which located the body. The clothing on the body was the same as what Morales was reported to be wearing when he disappeared.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation by Lake Mead National Recreational Area.
