The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit discovered the body Monday while searching for someone who drowned the previous week. The body was found at a depth of 1,062 feet, according to an El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office statement.

The discovery and recovery of Datla’s body was a multi-agency effort, unprecedented at the lake due to the extreme depth and the methods used to bring him to the surface.
