(SODA SPRINGS, ID) – The body of a Bear Lake County man was recovered from Blackfoot Reservoir Sunday morning. Twenty-eight-year-old Tyson Sims of Georgetown was found with a search plane shortly before 9 a.m. Sims was swimming with a friend on Thursday when their boat drifted away. His friend was able to make it back to shore and notified authorities that Sims had disappeared. Officials spent three days searching the 18,000-acre reservoir, but delayed the operation on Saturday because of high winds. An investigation is ongoing.
