LAS VEGAS -- An official says a capsized boat and the body of one missing Las Vegas man have been found in Lake Mead, and searchers are looking for two other men who were with him on a multi-day outing.

National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover says the boat was found about 11:30 a.m. Friday north of Gull Islands in the Colorado River reservoir behind Hoover Dam.

The names of the men weren't immediately made public.

Vanover says they were reported missing late Thursday by a family member who said they hadn't called in for the night.

Their vehicle was found at dawn Friday at Echo Bay.

Park Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife and Las Vegas police rescue crews and divers are involved in the air and water search.
