PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a boater who went missing at Lake Pleasant has been found safe on shore.

The Arizona Republic reports that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office had feared that 31-year-old Bradley Johnson had slid off the back of a boat while sleeping.

Dive teams searched part of the lake Sunday night and Monday morning. The Republic reports that he was found alive about 2 p.m. Monday near the Lake Pleasant marina.

Johnson says he jumped into the water after an altercation, then swam to shore. A jet-skier later picked him up and brought him to the marina.
