The Elko County sheriff's office has identified a man missing and presumed to have drowned in a private reservoir.
Cristian Ramos, 24, and another worker at the Petan Ranch 85 miles north of Elko were canoeing on Rawhide Reservoir on Sunday when their canoe capsized in 8 to 12 feet of water.
Authorities said the other worker was able to make it to shore about 50 yards away, but Ramos was not seen again.
Investigators say neither man had been in a boat before.
It was not known if Ramos knew how to swim.
Emergency rescue teams including divers have been searching the
lake but no body has been recovered.
