The body of a man who went missing after jumping off a cliff into Saguaro Lake on Sunday was found on Friday, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
Justin Otto Lee Anderson jumped from a 300-foot cliff west of Sandy Beach and didn’t resurface, Sheriff’s Office officials said. His body was found in the area Friday. Sandy Beach is located at Saguaro Lake in the Tonto National Forest.
Various witnesses said they saw Anderson, who was in his early 30s, hit the water on his back and never resurface.
