PUEBLO, Colo. — Emergency personnel have recovered the body of a man from a lake in Pueblo County following an overnight search.
The Pueblo Chieftain reports the body of 73-year-old David Bothel of Colorado Springs was found in Lake Pueblo State Park Tuesday morning.
Authorities say Colorado Parks and Wildlife rangers launched a search Monday after three witnesses reported seeing an empty boat adrift in No Name Cove around 3:30 p.m.
The witnesses say they saw a man fishing alone in the boat about 20 minutes earlier.
Authorities say they discovered Bothel in about 40 feet of water using sonar equipment. His body was recovered using a remote operated vehicle.
Officials say Bothel’s body was transferred to the Pueblo County Coroner’s office.AlertMe
