A body has been recovered from Lake Cachuma this afternoon, but there’s no word yet on whether it’s that of a Ventura County man who disappeared in the lake earlier this month.

The body was discovered at around noon today by one of the teams which had been searching for Isaiah Sanchez.

The 22 year old El Rio man had been boating July 11th with two other people when the craft had problems.

Sanchez, and another man started to swim to shore, but ran into problems.

The other man was rescued, but Sanchez disappeared.

Crews have been searching since then with helicopters, and boats.

Efforts to use divers were dropped because of near zero visibility.

Kelley Hoover, with the Sheriff’s Department, says the County Coroner’s Office had team members on hand, and have taken in the body for identification.
