YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - The Yuma County Sheriff's Office tells 13 On Your Side they have found the body of the man who went missing after going fishing at Mittry Lake three days ago.

An underwater recovery team and Customs and Border Protection officers found the body of 66-year-old Frank Wallace at around 11 am this morning.

Deputies say they do not suspect any foul play.

Wallace's family has been notified of his passing.

A Yuma County Medical Examiner is investigating the cause of death.

Wallace was reporting missing yesterday around noon.

A friend called 911 to report Wallace had gone fishing to Mittry Lake on the night of May 6 and never returned.

Wallace's friend was concerned and went to go check on him, but found his car at the boat dock.

Yuma County Sheriff's Office Deputies were unable to find Wallace anywhere on land.

They then sent a vessel out to look for Wallace and found his fishing boat partially under water along with his personal belongings near the boat dock.
