The body of the man found in Lake Monticello’s Tufton Pond has been identified as Steven S. Graves, 73, of Lake Monticello, according to a press release from the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office.

The Lake Monticello Police Department (LMPD) on Saturday (Jan. 26) took a report that Graves was missing. His last suspected location was in the area of Lake Monticello’s Tufton Pond, according to the release.

Deputies from the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office and a K9 unit from the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office assisted LMPD in the search. Nothing was initially located, according to the release.
