The swimmer was reported missing around 8:15 p.m. Saturday, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials.

Officials found the body of a swimmer who was reported missing at Lake Pueblo State Park on Saturday, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The swimmer was reported missing around 8:15 p.m. Saturday, according to a Sunday news release from CPW. Witnesses said the swimmer was last seen near the Sailboard Beach area west of the dam.

Rangers and divers from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office searched the lake and found the swimmer’s body around 11 p.m. Saturday. The body was in 6 feet deep water around 75 feet from the shore, according to the news release.

The person’s name has not yet been publicly released, officials said.

This is the 19th water-related death in the state this year, according to CPW.

“We hate seeing a life lost so tragically,” said Joe Stadterman, Lake Pueblo State Park Manager, in the Sunday release. “This is another sad example of the importance of wearing life jackets when you are in or even near the water.”
