OGALLALA, Neb. (AP) – Authorities have recovered the body of Colorado man who had been missing since Friday at Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the 36-year-old man’s body was found around 9:45 a.m. Sunday.

The man was last seen paddling a raft when it capsized during a thunderstorm and he disappeared. His name was not immediately released.

In a separate incident Friday, 69-year-old Dwight Hatch, of Ogallala, was hurt when he was trapped between two beached boats. Hatch was treated and released from a local hospital.

State officials say there have now been five deaths in 33 boating accidents in Nebraska this year.
