BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) - Officials at Lake Mead say they've found two bodies in the same areas where two men went missing on July 20.

Authorities say volunteers using advanced equipment located a body about 340 feet underwater on Monday morning. Rangers, game wardens and volunteers recovered the body, which Clark County coroner's officials identified as 25-year-old Las Vegas resident Irving Andrade-Yanez.

A visitor at Lake Mohave reported seeing a man's body floating on Friday afternoon. Rangers recovered it from the Nevada shoreline.

That body hasn't been identified, but authorities say it was found not far from where a 53-year-old man disappeared after jumping from a boat.

Rangers say the two missing men hadn't been wearing life jackets, and winds had been gusting between 20 and 30 mph the day they vanished.
