The San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s Office has identified a 29-year-old man who is believed to have drowned at Lake Nacimiento on Sunday.

The agency said Monday that the body of Oscar Edwardo Palomares-Osoria, of Corcoran, was recovered Sunday.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, at about 11:16 a.m., witnesses reported hearing a distressed man call out while swimming in the lake near the Sandy Point campground before seeing him go under the water.

The Sheriff’s Dive Team, Monterey County Parks and a California Highway Patrol helicopter assisted with the search and recovery of the victim.

The Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Monday that there is no indication of foul play or otherwise suspicious circumstances.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday in order to determine the manner and cause of death.
