Divers searching for a 28-year-old Air Force airman believed to have drowned last year found a body in Lake Mead on Wednesday, according to the National Park Service.
Earth Resource Group, a Las Vegas-based search and recovery organization, had been looking for Antonio Tucker, whom officials believe drowned June 23. The identify of the body has not been confirmed.
The group started its search Monday within a nautical mile of the point where Tucker was last seen in Boulder Basin, officials said.
Using sonar, searchers discovered what appeared to be a body Tuesday, but law enforcement divers contacted to retrieve the body had to postpone the recovery because of high winds.
National Park Service and Metro Police officials recovered the body about 10:50 a.m. today.
The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the identify of the body.
