PUEBLO, Colo. — The body of a 57-year-old woman who had been missing since Saturday was recovered Wednesday afternoon from Lake Pueblo, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said.
An anonymous witness tip led park rangers to search a small southern section of lake, where the body of Kimberlie Temple was found floating against the dam and pulled from the water.
The cause and circumstances of her death remain under investigation.
“While this is never something CPW search crews enjoy, we are glad to bring closure to the family of Miss Temple,” parks spokesman Kyle Davidson said.
Temple was last seen about 10:30 a.m. Saturday heading out on a boating and fishing trip with Frank Montoya, 61.
Temple’s brother called authorities after she failed to return home as expected. Park rangers began searching for the two at 1 a.m. Sunday and continued looking until about 2 p.m.
Another search on Monday yielded no signs of the boat or debris. A pickup truck and boat trailer believed to belong to Montoya were found in the parking area at the south boat ramp.
Montoya remain missing and Davidson said crews will continue to search for him Thursday in the area where Temple was found.
