CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Searchers in Wyoming have found the body of a Montana man who went missing last week in Buffalo Bill Reservoir just west of Cody.
Park County officials say the body of 80-year-old Merle Henry Daly of Billings, Montana, was discovered Tuesday evening, floating in the general area where he disappeared at about 7:30 p.m. on June 8.
Investigators say the former Cody resident and a friend, Kay Becker, had stopped on an island across the reservoir from the Buffalo Bill State Park boat ramp when their boat drifted away. Becker said Daly tried to swimming to the boat, yelled for help and then disappeared under the water. He was not wearing a life jacket.
