BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the Southern California man whose body was pulled from the waters of Lake Mohave about a week after he jumped from a houseboat.

Clark County coroner's officials say 31-year-old Paul Bach Nguyen (WIN'), of Alhambra, died of drowning.

A tourist spotted his body floating near Cottonwood Cove on Sunday afternoon, and it was recovered by rangers at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Lake Mead spokeswoman Christie Vanover says Nguyen had been boating with family and friends on Aug. 16 when he went for a swim and disappeared.

He was not wearing a lifejacket.

Crews had been searching for him since he went missing.
