LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, NV - MAY 13: A fisherman casts his line into the waters of Lake Mead near Boulder Beach on May 13, 2015 in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada. As severe drought grips parts of the Western United States, Lake Mead, which was once the largest reservoir in the nation, has seen its surface elevation drop below 1,080 feet above sea level, its lowest level since the construction of the Hoover Dam in the 1930s.

A man has been found dead at a national recreation area near the Nevada-Arizona state line.

An employee at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area reported finding an abandoned vehicle and a man dead about 40 feet away Wednesday. The vehicle and body were near a dry wash along the main road between Henderson and Overton in Nevada.

Recreation area spokeswoman Christie Vanover says the 70-year-old man had a Henderson address but his license plate wasn’t from Nevada.

His name hasn’t been released.

The National Park Service and the Clark County medical examiner’s office are investigating how he died.
