August 28, 2018

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man who went missing while fishing in a reservoir in southern Wyoming.

Albany County Undersheriff Josh Debree says 44-year-old Rocky Federico, of Denver, was fishing on a float tube on Wheatland Reservoir No. 3 north of Laramie when a storm rolled through Aug. 19.

Investigators believe that Federico’s and his tube were blown across the reservoir and that he tried to walk or swim across a shallow area. His body was found Friday morning floating about 100 yards (91 meters) from shore.
