LAKE HAVASU – Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies from the Division of Boating Safety and Dive and Rescue Recovery team located a deceased male near Thompson Bay area near Patrick Tinnell Memorial Sports Park in Lake Havasu on Saturday, May 4.

Deputies responded to a missing person call, and it was confirmed the missing male was identified as Edward Young, 59 from Lake Havasu City.

Personal belongings were found on shore and a remote controlled boat was floating near the buoy line of Thompson Bay.

After investigating, deputies discovered Young had been at the park operating his remote controlled boat and had not been heard from since leaving to do so.

Investigations led authorities to believing that Young may have crashed his remote controlled boat and attempted to swim out to it.
