The body of a swimmer who went missing in the Snake River Saturday evening has been found. The drowned man was identified as 28-year-old Daniel Bravo-Rodriguez of Caldwell.
The Payette County Sheriffs Office found Bravo-Rodriguez's body at 8:40 a.m. about a mile downstream from where he disappeared. Payette police, the Payette Rural Fire Department, Malheur County Sheriffs Office and Washington County Sheriffs Office helped with the search.
Bravo-Rodriguez was swimming with Nena Martinez when he went under, the Payette County Sheriffs Office said. Martinez told deputies that the victim began to struggle in the water, pulling her under.
The woman freed herself from his grip, then tried to grab him but was unable to, according to the sheriff's office.
Law enforcement searched for Bravo-Rodriguez until dark on Saturday, then began the search again Sunday morning and Monday morning.
The mans body was found near Nagaki Island in the Snake River.
