Body Found in Lake Powell Could Be 2007 Missing Man

A body found floating in the waters of Lake Powell on Wednesday may belong to a Colorado fisherman missing since a rock slide in 2007. Officials suspect the body belongs to a Calhan, Colo. resident who has been missing for nearly six years. Deputies and park rangers from the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area responded to the Lake Canyon area after a group of boaters reported finding the body there at around noon Wednesday. Deputies say there’s no evidence of foul play.

Deputies say Donald and Mary Simmons had been fishing Sept. 28, 2007, when a slab of rock fell from an overhang and landed on the couple’s pontoon boat. Authorities recovered Mary Simmons’ body, but never found Donald’s. An official identification will be made at the Utah Medical Examiner’s Office in Salt Lake City.

Lake Powell Communications extends our deepest sympathy to the family of Donald and Mary Simmons at this difficult time.
