Body of man who drowned in Lakewood’s American Lake found

Divers found the body of a 63-year-old man who drowned in Lakewood’s American Lake Tuesday, according to the Lakewood Police Department. The man was identified as Franklin Harvey by Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Harvey, of Tacoma, was trying to swim to shore Tuesday after a boat he was in with his 65-year-old brother started taking on water, said police Lt. Chris Lawler. Neither of them had life vests, but Lawler said Harvey may have had some kind of “flotation cushion.”

About 75 yards away from the boat, Harvey disappeared under water, Lawler said. Nearby boaters were able to save his brother, but they could not find Harvey.
