(KSL News) Searchers have scaled back efforts to find a possible drowning victim in Lake Powell.

Don Simmons, 64, disappeared last month when a rock slab fell on the bow of his boat, sinking it. The body of his wife, Mary, was found soon after the accident.

Rangers say they believe Simmons body is in water deeper than 150 feet, so it is unlikely it will be recovered.
