Divers Find Body in Search for Missing Swimmer on Lake Benbrook

Firefighters said they recovered a body in Lake Benbrook while searching for a missing swimmer Thursday morning.

Fort Worth and Benbrook firefighters said they were searching for a 16-year-old boy that went under the water 200 yards south of the boat ramp at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and never resurfaced.

Divers with both fire departments searched the area Wednesday with hand lights and support boats in the water until it was too dark.

The dive team found the body of Niraj Bhujel after resuming their search at about 9 a.m. Thursday.
