PUEBLO -- The body of a missing man was located and recovered from the Pueblo Reservoir on Saturday.

Park Rangers told News 5 that the 43-year-old man jumped into the water on Thursday and never came back up. The man was in an inflatable raft with his son and wife, both of whom survived.

Using side scan sonar technology, crews searched the area. 

The rangers stopped looking for the man on Friday due to weather conditions. After the search efforts on Friday, officials had a good indication of where the body would be. They found him quickly on Saturday, 30-feet below water.
