PRICE, Utah (AP) - Park officials and Carbon County Sheriff’s deputies have recovered the body of a 33-year-old Herriman man who went missing Saturday evening while boating on eastern Utah’s Scofield Reservoir.

Deputies say Jaran Cruz’s body was pulled from the water early Sunday after it was found about 100 feet from the shore.

The state medical examiner is expected to conduct an autopsy.

Cruz was fishing with two men Saturday evening when their 14-foot canoe overturned on the reservoir’s north end.

One man stayed with the boat as another man made it safely to shore.



Several nearby boaters tried to assist Cruz but could not find him.

Deputies say the men were not wearing life jackets.
