Body pulled from Folsom Lake could be Vineyard man missing since April, officials say

Authorities believe a body found in Folsom Lake on Thursday could be that of Alexander Ham, the 29-year-old Vineyard resident who went missing while boating on the lake in April.

The body was found near the lake’s peninsula at around 2 p.m. by people walking by, Folsom Lake State Recreation Area Superintendent Richard Preston said.

Preston said he believes the body is that of Ham’s, who fell off his jet ski April 14 near the peninsula after being separated from a friend. El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office deputies said they did not think Ham was wearing a personal flotation device.

Ham went missing April 14 and crews with several agencies searched for about 90 minutes before resuming their search over the next three days. After the search was called off April 17, Ham was officially listed as a missing person.
