BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities have recovered the body of a 36-year-old Las Vegas man who disappeared after falling off a boat at Lake Mead.

The National Park Service says the body of Schayne Baker was found by divers in about 15 feet of water Thursday afternoon.

A search for Baker began after he fell off a boat near Callville Bay Marina in Lake Mead National Recreation Area on Wednesday night and vanished underwater.

Witnesses told emergency personnel the man had been drinking and was not wearing a life jacket.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
