Two found dead at Lake Mead National Recreation Area

The bodies of a man and a woman were discovered inside a van near Greggs Hideout in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area on Sunday.

Lake Mead officials received a call at about 5 p.m. from someone who reported seeing the two bodies inside of the minivan, according to the National Park Service.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Park Service rangers responded and located the two people in a minivan that was stuck in the dirt on Salt Spring Wash Road within the park, officials said.

The man and woman, who Park Service officials said were from Golden Valley, Ariz., appeared to have died from environmental exposure. Only two bottles of water were found at the scene and there was no cellphone coverage in the area, officials said.

The Mohave County medical examiner will determine cause of death and release their names once next of kin has been notified.
