Body of missing man found in Newton Dam.

Authorities say the body of a man who disappeared while swimming in a reservoir at Newton Dam has been found.

The Cache County Sheriff's Office says 35-year-old Austin Nsegiyumva's body was found about 50 feet from shore under 8 feet of water.

Lt. Brian Locke said that a search team had previously combed that area but there had been storms recently and thick brush on the bottom of the reservoir that may have delayed finding the body.

Authorities say Nsegiyumva was swimming with friends and disappeared.

The sheriff's office says the man's body is being sent to the state medical examiner's office.
