Authorities in Nevada say the body of a woman reported missing last week has been recovered from Lake Mohave in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The name of the 39-year-old woman wasn’t immediately released Monday.

Authorities say the woman reportedly was not wearing a personal flotation device, and the death is being investigated as a drowning.

National Park Service rangers say a witness called 911 on Saturday to report that a woman went missing.

Rangers began search and rescue efforts until midnight Saturday and resumed Sunday with assistance from Mohave County dive personnel.

Authorities say the victim’s body was recovered Sunday afternoon.
