Coroner IDs body of missing swimmer at Lake Mead

A man whose body was found Monday in 300 feet of water at Lake Mead was identified today by the Clark County Coroner’s Office as Irving Andrade-Yanez, 25, of Las Vegas.

Andrade-Yanez had been missing since July 20, when he went swimming without a life jacket near Boulder Islands, according to Lake Mead National Recreation Area officials. Volunteers from​ the Earth Resource Group found his body.

The cause of death has not been determined.

On Friday afternoon, National Park Service rangers recovered another body believed to be of a 53-year-old man who was reported missing on the same day at Lake Mohave.

He reportedly jumped from his boat without a life jacket, officials said. The body was found on the Nevada shoreline after a visitor reported a body floating in the lake.

The coroner has not yet identified the body.
