PAGE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say the body of an apparent drowning victim has been recovered from Lake Powell on the Arizona-Utah border.
Officials with the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area say 26-year-old Colby Roman was reported missing May 25.
The Scottsdale, Ariz., resident and a friend decided to go for a swim while their houseboat drifted.
Witnesses say high winds pushed the boat away from the swimmers and Roman tried to help his friend.
The remaining three people on the boat were able to save that man, but they say Roman slipped under the water and couldn't be located.
After a 26-day search, Roman's body was located Wednesday at a depth of more than 260 feet by a remote unit equipped with sonar and video.
The National Park Service is investigating the death.
