BRECKENRIDGE (AP) - Divers found a body in Dillon Reservoir Monday believed to be that of former state legislator Bryan Sullivant, who's been missing since Saturday night.
The Summit County Sheriff's Department says the body was discovered shortly after noon near Sullivant's 28-foot sailboat moored at Frisco Bay Marina.
Sullivant was last seen heading toward his sailboat in a dinghy. Marina workers found the capsized dinghy yesterday.
Sheriff's investigators say there's no sign of foul play and the incident appears to be an accident.
The sheriff's department says the coroner will make a positive identification of the body and determine the cause of death.
Summit County Undersheriff Derek Woodman said this was the first boating fatality on the Dillon Reservoir since the mid-1980s.
The 51-year-old Sullivant lived in Breckenridge. He was a Republican lawmaker elected three times to the Colorado House before he was appointed in February of 1999 to a vacant seat in the state Senate.
