Source: Body found in lake near hotel identified as missing Arvada man
WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Sources confirmed Tuesday the body found in a lake near the Westin Hotel is John Lucas “Luke” Edwards.
A fire department dive team found the body late Monday afternoon.
Authorities have been searching for Luke Edwards, 36, who disappeared after a Christmas Party at the hotel Dec. 8.
His girlfriend said he never made it back to the hotel room.
Westminster Fire spokeswoman Diana Allen says rescuers decided to do one more search of the lake Monday afternoon at the urging of Luke Edwards’ family. They also wanted to do it ahead of winter storm that is forecast to move into the metro area Tuesday night.
The body was found in an area of the lake that crews had already searched with sonar.
