Update: Missing boater found at Branched Oak

Jim Sullivan

Rescue crews have recovered the body of 33-year-old Cory Adams at Branched Oak Lake. 

He was discovered at 1:45 Tuesday by members of the Lincoln Fire Department and Nebraska Game and Parks.  Rescue workers, family and friends of Adams have been searching for his body since Saturday night.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says Adams and 32-year-old Jim Sullivan of Valparaiso were on a boat when it caught fire Saturday evening.  Sullivan swam back to the boat after the fire was out.  However, the sheriff says Adams tried to swim to shore, and hasn't been seen since.  Sullivan was taken to the hospital and treated for hypothermia.

A fund has been set up at Union Bank for the Adams family.
