ELKO, NV - Search crews have found the body of an Elko man who fell from a boat while fishing with two small children in South Fork Reservoir and never returned to shore.

Michael Schublom was fishing in the northeastern Nevada reservoir Thursday when he reached over the side of the boat and fell into the water about 4 p.m.

Officials say he was not wearing a life jacket and wasn't able to get back into the boat before it drifted away. His body was found Saturday. He's believed to have drowned.

Campers rescued the two children in the drifting boat but were unable to find Schublom in the lake or on the shore.
