PAGE, Ariz. (AP) -- A Utah man who was initially reported as missing at Lake Powell during the weekend was later found dead in about five feet of water, officials said Monday.

The man, whose man hadn't been released, was camping with a large group near the lake when he was reported missing early Saturday, according to the National Park Service.

Members of the group told authorities they last saw the man diving off the back of a houseboat on Friday evening.

The cause of death wasn't known Monday, though a park service release said alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
