(Gainesville) – A fisherman who was reported missing was found dead this past Sunday in Bull Shoals Lake.

44-year-old Brendon James of Overland Park, KS, was found around 10:30 AM Sunday morning near Point 19 on Bull Shoals Lake.

He went missing on March 25, when his father, who lives in the Theodosia area, told authorities that he had not returned from a fishing trip.

His boat was found floating the following day along the shoreline near Peel, AR.

Marion County Sheriff Roger Vickers says that James’ body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Little Rock to determine the cause of death.

Assistance in the search was provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Arkansas Game and Fish, and the Ozark and Marion County Sheriff’s Departments.
