LAKE HAVASU CITY — A deceased male was located about 75 feet from the shoreline in Thompson Bay.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety and the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Dive Rescue and Recovery Team responded about 6:45 a.m. May 4 to a call about a missing person in the Thompson Bay area, near the Patrick Tinnell Memorial Sports Park.

MCSO found miscellaneous personal belongings on the shore and a remote control boat was floating near the buoy line of Thompson Bay. The investigation determined Edward Young, 59, from Lake Havasu City had been operating his remote control boat at the park and hadn’t been heard from since.  

MSCO Dive Rescue and Recovery Team located a deceased male in the Thompson Bay. The body was about 75 feet from the shoreline in about 10 feet of water. The body was recovered, and it was confirmed to be the missing male, Edward Young.

MCSO said early investigations led them to believe Edward may have crashed his remote control boat and attempted to swim out to it.

This investigation is still ongoing.
