Body recovered at Lake Mohave

A body has been recovered in Placer Cove on Lake Mohave where a teen went missing Wednesday.

National Park Service rangers began searching the area around 12:30 p.m. after witnesses said a teen jumped from a cliff to help a swimmer below. The swimmer made it to safety, but witnesses said the teen was seen going underwater.

Rangers located the body underwater using sonar and called in the Metropolitan Police Department’s search and rescue dive team from Las Vegas for support. The dive team recovered the body.

The Clark County coroner’s office will confirm the victim’s identity and determine the cause of death.

The incident is under investigation.
