Body of man suspected of drowning located in pond near Brewster, Wash.
BREWSTER, Wash. — The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of an Idaho underwater search and rescue team, located the body of a man in Washburn Pond on Tuesday.
The recovery came after almost two weeks of searching.
On April 4, officers responded to a report of a possible drowning. Two brothers, 18-year-old Jesus Bravo-Marroquin and 20-year-old Alexander Bravo-Marroquin had overturned their canoe. Only one brother, Jesus, made it to shore.
Volunteers from the Okanogan County Search and Rescue, Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Colville Tribal Department of Recreation, and U.S. Border Patrol banded together to search for Alexander over the course of several days.
It was after calling in assistance from Ralston and Associates Underwater Search and Rescue that Alexander’s body was located early Tuesday morning.
