LAS VEGAS -- Authorities say a man's body has been found in a lake behind Hoover Dam.

A spokesman for the Bureau of Reclamation said the body was found in Lake Mead behind the Arizona intake tower of the dam Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the man had no identification.

Bureau spokesman Bob Walsh says a medical examiner in Mohave County, Ariz., will determine the man's identity and cause of death.

Walsh says authorities found a vehicle in a parking lot on the Arizona side of the dam that may belong to the man.
