SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) – Rescuers recovered the body of a Lake Tahoe boater who went missing while swimming during a trip with friends Tuesday.
South Lake Tahoe police confirm the body of 25-year-old Ian Morlang of Gilroy was recovered Thursday. K9 cadaver dogs helped with the search, and a remote underwater vehicle located the body near Lily Beach, between the Tahoe Keys Marina and Lakeview Avenue.
On Tuesday at 5 p.m., South Lake Tahoe received word that a sailboat had picked up two people, but the third was missing. The three had rented a boat earlier in the day from Tahoe Keys Marina and were near the boat near Lily Beach when they were separated from the boat due to wind and currents.
The two people who were rescued were wearing lifejackets, but the missing boater, Ian Morlang, was not. He reportedly went under the water and never resurfaced.
