OGDEN — A man saved his 11-year-old son from drowning in the Pineview Reservoir, but never resurfaced after saving the boy.

The man, who was not identified, was able to push the boy to where the boy could touch the bottom, and a sibling helped the boy to shore, according to witnesses.

Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther said the man disappeared after helping the boy, and his body was later found by a dive team.

More information will be posted when it becomes available.
