BOULDER CITY (KSNV MyNews3.com) --
A two-week search for missing boaters at Lake Mead National Recreation Area could could end soon.
A National Park Service boat crew has been searching the lake since Feb. 20, when three boaters went missing.
The body of North Las Vegas resident Oscar Dixon, Jr. was recovered shortly after an overturned fishing boat was found near the shore in Echo Bay the following day.
Two other men on the fishing trip, Charles Finley and Lewis Hayes, have not been found.
A massive land, water and air search that included Red Rock Search & Rescue, the NPS, the Nevada Division of Wildlife, Metro, and volunteers was conducted the weekend after the men were reported missing.
The boat search was soon scaled back, but an NPS crew has been been devoting eight hours a day to the search since then, according to park spokeswoman Christie Vanover.
"The park pilot was on leave, but has returned and he will make some flights over the area each day," Vanover told News 3 earlier this week. "The plan is to search by boat and plane through Sunday (March 9) and then they will re-evaluate what they do next."
The family of Oscar Dixon, Jr. set up an account at Bank of America under the name of Leona Dixon.
A family friend held a benefit barbecue last week to raise money to help pay for the funeral services of all three men.
