A pickup with the remains of a body was recovered Friday from the Carson Highway boat ramp at Lahontan Reservoir.

A pickup with the remains of an adult male still inside the vehicle was recovered Friday from the Lahontan Reservoir's boat ramp off the Carson Highway, said Churchill County Sheriff Ben Trotter.

According to Trotter, boaters at the Lahontan State Recreational area noted what appeared to be a large submerged obstacle near the boat ramps. He said Fallon Churchill Volunteer Fire Department's dive team assisted with the removal of the pickup. Trotter said the investigation will continue to identify the occupant as well as the circumstances involving the truck.

"In consideration of possible next of kin and notification of them once identity has been confirmed, no further information will be released at this time," Trotter said.
