SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say they have recovered the body of a fisherman missing since Sunday on Willard Bay.

Utah State Parks officials said Wednesday that searchers used sonar to find the body of 45-year-old Matthew Rasmussen in the bay north of Salt Lake City.

Authorities say he was found in 13-foot-deep water about a half-mile from the north marina.

The Morgan County resident was reported missing Sunday morning and his boat was found that night with the gear still inside.

The Great Salt Lake’s Willard Bay is located about 50 miles north of Salt Lake City.
