Missing fisherman’s body found in Flame Gulch

MANILA, Utah (AP) – Authorities have recovered the body of a missing Wyoming fisherman whose empty boat was found partially submerged in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

MPs from Daggett County, Utah, say the body of 46-year-old Danny Angelo Durante was discovered about 30 meters underwater and about 30 meters from his boat Thursday night. Durante’s body was pulled out of the water around 11 p.m.

The Jackson man’s boat was reported in the Jug Hollow area on Sunday evening. Presumably it capsized in strong winds and treacherous water at the reservoir.

Alternates from Daggett and Summit in Utah and Sweetwater Counties, Wyoming helped find the number. The body was found using sonar operated by the Utah Department of Public Safety’s diving team.
