Posted: Thursday, Oct 4th, 2012

After a 13 day search, the body of 40-year-old Pejman Pourhousen, a swimmer that went missing on Sept. 21 in the area of Gunsight Bay, was recovered from Lake Powell on Oct. 3 by the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Underwater Recovery Unit.

Pourhassan was reported missing on after he went for a swim. According to witnesses the Salt Lake City resident jumped off a wake board boat and was swimming to the houseboat when he began to call for help, the group attempted to assist, but were unable to find him.

According to law enforcement, the body was discovered at a depth of over 100 feet, using a Remote Operated Vehicle equipped with sonar and video.

The lengthy search covered approximately three and a half square miles in the vicinity of Gunsight Bay and included participation from Utah Highway Patrol Dive Team, US Coast Guard Auxiliary and Kane County Sheriff’s Office.

“We appreciate the hard work and effort of everyone who helped with this recovery. The days were long and difficult, but all of the responders were working to help the family,” said Superintendent Todd Brindle.
