FRISCO, Colo. ” Summit County Water Rescue Team divers recovered a body from Dillon Reservoir Saturday evening that Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson says could be Adam Brown, a seven-year Frisco resident who fell overboard last Wednesday.

A process to confirm the identification is continuing by the coroner’s office.

A lengthy recovery effort complicated by weather and high altitude continued all day Saturday for Brown, who was loved by co-workers in town ” reflected by a vigil held Friday evening and loving comments from friends and co-workers.

With the help of Colorado State Park rangers, dive teams, using high-tech sonar equipment, found the body. According to the Sheriff’s Office press release, the “preliminary findings suggested the deceased is Adam Brown.”

Last week, Summit County sheriff’s deputies determined the boat’s driver, Frisco resident Kevin Lukanski, was intoxicated. Lukanski, 35, was arrested on suspicion of operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol and was taken to the Summit County jail. He was released on a $1,000 bond shortly after his arrest.
