Three days after an Arizona man went missing while swimming in Lake Powell, his body was recovered in the Warm Creek area in Kane County.
A National Park Service search crew located the body of Dustin Olague, 30, of Flagstaff, on Wednesday. According to witnesses, Olague — who was not wearing a life vest — jumped from a boat to go for a swim on Sunday afternoon. He was last seen approximately 100 meters from the boat when he went under the water and did not resurface.
Conditions were semi-windy on Sunday, according to authorities. Lake Powell is estimated to be 80-120 feet deep in that area.
The National Park Service conducted a grid search with side-scan sonar equipment and a submerged Remote Operated Vessel dive boat. The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Dive Team assisted in the recovery.
Olague’s body was transported to the Utah medical examiner’s office in Salt Lake City for an autopsy. The incident is under investigation by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the National Park Service and the Utah medical examiner’s office.
