Body found in Coralville Reservoir is missing snowmobiler

Posted:

ANKENY (KWWL) -- The Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed that the body found in the Coralville Reservoir on Friday is missing snowmobiler Martin "Marty" Davis.

Dental records had to be used to positively identify the body.

His death is being considered an accidental drowning.

The body was found by a kayaker at about 1:30 p.m. Friday about a half-mile east of Mid River Marina on the south shore.

Davis, 52, of Shueyville, went snowmobiling on January 3, 2010, told his family he'd be back in a few hours and hadn't been seen since.

His family and police suspected his snowmobile went through the ice.

Davis' helmet was found by a fisherman on March 15th floating downstream between Bobber's and Sandy Beach.
