Witnesses told authorities that Munoz-Rodriguez was swimming with two women around 7:40 p.m. Friday when the three people began to struggle in the water.

The two women were able to get back to shore but Munoz-Rodriguez didn’t resurface.

Davis Camp Park rangers unsuccessful searched for the man until dusk Friday.

The search resumed Saturday morning with divers plus an Arizona Department of Public Safety helicopter checking all caves and docks from Davis Dam to Rotary Park.

Sunday’s search ranged from Rotary Park down the Colorado River before the body was located Monday morning.
