The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/T9lS9Y) that Great Salt Lake Marina harbor master rescued a third man from the water Saturday near Saltair.

Unified Police Department Lt. Justin Hoyal says the three began hunting about 1 p.m. and their boat overturned a few hours later.

He says that the man who was rescued swam for help.

Bad weather plagued the search that included a helicopter with a searchlight that flew above the water.

Searchers brought the bodies of the two missing hunters to shore around midnight.

The paper says one was from West Jordan and the other from the Salt Lake County area.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the deaths.
