MESA -- The body of a boater has been recovered from Saguaro Lake.

Search ends finding boater's body

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the boater had gone missing Saturday night after an accident at the dock in which the victim either fell or jumped into about 15 feet of water.

Investigators said bystanders were not successful in their immediate attempts to rescue the victim because of the dark.

The victim's name has not yet been released.

Divers with the sheriff's office were called out but the search was stopped Saturday night when it became too dark. The search resumed Sunday morning and the victim's body was found.
