August 23, 2009

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials recovered the body of a 52-year-old man who drowned in Apache Lake after going missing Friday.

County dive crews recovered the man's body about 1:40 p.m. Sunday, said Deputy Douglas Matteson, a sheriff's spokesman.

On Friday evening the man's unsecured boat went adrift in the water and he attempted to swim out to capture it, Matteson said. However, he went underwater and was not seen from again. Sheriff's detectives were en route to the lake, Matteson said.
