Body found in Keystone Lake believed that of missing worker

KEYSTONE ” A body found in Keystone Lake Friday is believed to be that of a Keystone ski resort employee who had been missing more than three days, authorities said.

An autopsy was planned to determine how the man died and also to establish positive identification, Summit County sheriff’s spokeswoman Paulette Horr said.

Roberto Acosta-Reyes, 27, had not been seen since Tuesday when he was pulled into Keystone Lake by other people during an end-of-season party, the sheriff’s office said.

He and others went into the lake at 3 a.m. Tuesday, but he was not reported missing until Wednesday, a sheriff’s report said. The reason for the delay was not immediately clear.

Foul play is not suspected, Horr said.

After searching the lake Thursday with a diver and underwater camera, crews returned to the lake to search for Acosta-Reyes with an underwater camera Friday and expanded the search area outside the lake.

Acosta-Reyes worked in the food and beverage department of the resort.
