Man’s Body Recovered From Blackfoot, Idaho Reservoir
CARIBOU COUNTY, Idaho (KTVB) - Southeastern Idaho officials have located the body of a man who went missing at Blackfoot Reservoir over the weekend.
William Wallace, 64, of Blackfoot went missing around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
Caribou County Sheriff Ric Anderson says Wallace was on the reservoir in a jet boat with his wife, granddaughter and her friend.
According to officials, the boat became clogged with moss and Wallace jumped in the water to clean out the propellers. However, storm winds blew the boat away.
Anderson says passengers swam to shore but Wallace never made it.
His body was recovered Monday morning, according to the sheriff's office.
