Body Of Missing Swimmer Recovered

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

National Park News

The body of 26-year-old Colby Roman was recovered from Lake Powell on June 20th by the park’s underwater recovery unit.  Roman was located at a depth of over 260 feet using a remote operated vehicle equipped with sonar and video. The 26-day search covered approximately two square miles in Warm Creek Bay and was supported by the Utah Highway Patrol dive team, Kane County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Ralston and Associates personnel, and Great Basin K9 Search and Rescue search dog teams.  Roman was reported missing on Friday, May 25th, after he and a friend decided to go for a swim while their houseboat drifted. The high winds pushed the boat away from the swimmers and one of them began to call for help. Roman attempted to swim to the aid of his friend. The remaining three people on the boat were able to save the first swimmer, but Roman slipped beneath the waves and could not be located.  A joint investigation of the incident by Kane County Sheriff’s Office and the National Park Service continues.
