ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — The body of a man missing in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir for 15 years may have been found.

Forty-three-year-old Richard Herren apparently fell into the reservoir while fishing with his wife and another man on May 4, 1997.  The Associated Press reported that volunteers returned to the scene on Saturday and found a body using the latest technology and assistance from his wife.

Mary Herren identified the approximate spot where her husband disappeared from their boat; No one saw him fall out at the time. Side-scan sonar and cadaver dogs then helped the searchers locate the body 130 feet below the water’s surface.

They were able to view the site using an underwater remote operated vehicle but additional planning will have to be done before the body can be recovered.
