LUBBOCK, TX. (KCBD) - Late Monday morning, Lubbock authorities recovered the body of a drowning victim from Lake Alan Henry. He is now identified as Daniel Parker, 35, of Payson, Arizona.

Lake Alan Henry is located in Garza county, about 65 miles southeast of Lubbock.

Authorities tell NewsChannel 11 that Parker fell overboard just after 8:00 p.m. Sunday night. He was reportedly one of eight people on a boat registered in his name.

Fourteen units from six agencies responded to the scene, and search rescue attempts continued until about midnight, but were unsuccessful.

A Lubbock dive team returned to the lake Monday morning. And just before 10:00 a.m., they located Parker's body in 38 feet of water, about two miles down from the boat ramp. 

His body will now be turned over to the Lubbock County Medical Examiner's office for autopsy.
