PEORIA — The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has called off a search at Lake Pleasant after a body was located.

Search crews were called to the lake Sunday afternoon after a boating incident.

Officials say the incident involved one boat that was anchored.

MCSO says a man swam from the boat to the shore and on his return back to the boat, he went under the water and didn't resurface.

After hours of searching, MCSO officials announced Monday that his body was located about 21 feet below the surface. He has been identified as 20-year-old Neria Aranbayev.

Authorities say there are no signs of foul play suspected.
