LAS VEGAS — A body with clothes matching the description of a man who has gone missing Friday has been found in Nevada’s Lake Mead.

The body had been found in about 75 feet (23 meters) of water near the Lake Mead Marina. Crews used an underwater vehicle with sonar capabilities.

The missing man, 22-year-old Wilmer Dante Morales, had been last seen in the marina trying to retrieve a raft from the water.

The Clark County coroner will confirm the identity of the body and determine the cause of death.
