BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been found dead at a national recreation area near the Nevada-Arizona state line.

An employee at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area reported finding an abandoned vehicle and a man dead about 40 feet away Wednesday. The vehicle and body were near a dry wash along the main road between Henderson and Overton in Nevada.

Recreation area spokeswoman Christie Vanover says the 70-year-old man had a Henderson address but his license plate wasn’t from Nevada.

His name hasn’t been released.

The National Park Service and the Clark County medical examiner’s office are investigating how he died.
