LAS VEGAS (AP) - A National Park Service official says searches have been scaled back to routine patrols in a Lake Mead area where two Las Vegas-area fishermen were reported missing from a capsized boat more than two weeks ago.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area spokeswoman Christie Vanover said Tuesday that rangers are continuing air and water patrols near where the boat and body of a third man were found Feb. 22.
Family members told KTNV-TV the missing men are 42-year-old Charles Finley and 63-year-old Lewis Hayes.
Authorities say they were reported missing late Feb. 21 after they didn't call in for the night.
The body of 48-year-old Oscar Dixon Jr., of North Las Vegas, was found the next day about a half-mile from the overturned 16-foot fiberglass boat north of Gull Islands.
