Body of Missing Wyoming Kayaker Found
RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — The body of 25-year-old man missing since April has been found in the Seminoe Reservoir in south-central Wyoming.
Jason Hunter of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department says that agency wardens found the body of Michael Proberts of Wamsutter last Saturday.
The Carbon County Sheriff's Office says that an autopsy found no signs of foul play and that the cause of death was drowning from hypothermia.
Authorities say Proberts went to the reservoir on the morning of April 15 with a kayak. The sheriff's office was notified the next day that Proberts should have returned by then.
The initial search found a kayak, paddle, life vest and ball cap near a cove across from the campground where Proberts launched his kayak.
