July 19, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Rescuers are searching for two men after a boat with its motor running was found unattended at a Utah reservoir.

The Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office says rescuers are looking for a 70-year-old from Salem and a 61-year-old from Pleasant Grove after the boat was reported to authorities Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say the men are brothers but they have not released their names.

The boat was found on the shore of Strawberry Reservoir near U.S. Highway 40.

Wasatch County Sheriff’s Lt. Ken Purdy says crews were searching an area of the reservoir known as The Ladders.

The reservoir is about 78 miles (125 kilometers) southeast of Salt Lake City.
