Damaged personal watercraft found on Lake Mead; no rider located

Authorities are looking for information about a personal watercraft that was found unoccupied Sunday on Lake Mead.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife found the swamped watercraft about 2:45 p.m. near Boulder Harbor, according to the National Park Service. The vessel, which had visible damage to the underside, was towed to shore, officials said.

National Park Service rangers and Nevada Department of Wildlife wardens have been searching the area for a possible operator.

The vessel is a 1994 purple, white and teal blue Polaris SLT 780. It has butterfly stickers on the right front and a Tinkerbell sticker on top, officials said.

On the right rear, a sticker reads: “All you need is Faith Trust and Pixie Dust. Another sticker on the nose reads: “I’m No Princess,” officials said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lake Mead dispatch center at 702-293-8998.

The owner could not be identified using the registration on the vessel, officials said.
