BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - The National Park Service says a body recovered from Lake Mead may be 45-year-old Henderson man who was reported missing last weekend.

The Clark County coroner didn’t immediately identify the man whose body was found by park rangers Thursday morning south of Castle Reef in in the vast Colorado River reservoir behind Hoover Dam.

Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover in Boulder City says searchers think it’s a man who disappeared after beginning to struggle while swimming a little after 4:30 p.m. May 10. He wasn’t wearing a lifejacket.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife and Earth Resource Group volunteers helped rangers search for the man after he was reported missing.

A cause of death is pending, and Vanover says the incident remains under investigation.
