LAKE POWELL, Utah — Teams of people helped recover a body from a vehicle that had plunged 600 feet off a ledge into Lake Powell. It's believed the vehicle has been missing since Sept. 2020 and was found due to the lake's receding waters.

Garfield County Sheriff's Office deputies, along with park rangers and volunteers extricated the body Monday from the vehicle near the Hite Marina.

The incident is still under investigation and FOX 13 will update this story as more information becomes available.
