An irrigation district employee discovered a body above Summer Falls Dam that is believed to be Scott Kolves, who was missing and presumed drowned in a March 29 accident.
The employee found the body around 8 a.m. Monday not far from where Kolves and his three sons were driving in his pickup truck when it crashed into the canal. Kolves' eight-year-old son Korey also died in the accident while his two other sons, ages 10 and 12, survived.
Kolves' next of kin has been notified and the body is in the care of the Grant County Coroner, who will confirm the identity.
“Scott Kolves’ family and loved ones have suffered while awaiting this recovery, and I pray they can find peace knowing we have found Scott’s body,” said Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones.
