Body Of Missing Hoover Reservoir Boater Recovered

Genoa Township Police

Genoa Township crews have recovered the body of a boater who disappeared in Hoover Reservoir after trying to free a sailboat that lodged on a sandbar. 54-year-old Thomas Mixter and a friend were in a small sailboat Saturday when the motor stopped working. He apparently jumped into the water to free the boat when it got stuck, and he couldn't climb back on.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
