Body of College Football Player Who Vanished on Lake Tahoe Recovered One Year Later
Authorities in California are believed to have found the remains of 20-year-old Marc Ma.
When a group of paddle boarders was blown into Lake Tahoe by powerful winds, all were soon plucked from the blue waters apart from 20-year-old University of Nevada Wolf Pack football player Marc Ma.
A year later, the Hawaii native's family still lacked closure without remains to inter. This past weekend, the Ma family asked an independent contractor to search the cobalt lake in hopes of finally finding their son.
On Monday, with the help of underwater cameras, searchers spotted a body believed to be Ma's some 240 feet below the surface.
While no official ID has been made, fingerprints and dental records will be used to make the official determination.
Ma, a defensive lineman at the University of Nevada, Reno, went paddle boarding on June 10, 2016, with a group of athlete friends from school, according to a statement from the Placer County Sheriff's Office.
Winds picked up on the lake shortly after the group entered the water. While his friends were rescued by a boat crew from a nearby marina, Ma was never seen again.
He was not wearing a personal floatation device.
