SOMERSET (KDKA) — The body of a missing boater in Fayette County was recovered Wednesday night.

Fayette County Deputy Coroner Roger Victor says 50-year-old Patrick Himmler, of Cumberland, Md., was found dead on the Somerset side of the Youghiogheny River.

His body was found in about 110-feet of water at about 6 p.m.

On Saturday, a boat carrying four people overturned on the Youghiogheny Lake. Three people were rescued and two were taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W. Va.

Numerous fire departments and dive teams, including one from Greensburg, used sonar to search the water for Himmler over the weekend.
