Salt Lake City (AP) - The body of a man who was on a boat that sank in Lake Powell more than a month ago has been recovered.
Robert Prescott of St. Petersburg, Fla., had been missing since the 20-foot boat sank on April 25 after taking on water in stiff winds and high waves. Four of the six people on the boat died.
The National Park Service says Prescott's body was located at a depth of 442 feet on sonar data taken earlier in the search. Divers recovered the body Wednesday.
The bodies of the three others who died were recovered shortly after the sinking.
The boaters included two retired couples from Florida and one from Arizona.
Two survivors were pulled from the water after the boat was reported overdue.
