PLEASANTON — Authorities have recovered the bodies of a missing father and his adult son in a lake east of San Francisco.

KNTV reports ( the pair disappeared Sunday night after they went rafting in Shadow Cliffs Lake Park in Pleasanton.

East Bay Regional Park District spokeswoman Carolyn Jones says they were in a raft without life jackets in an area that lifeguards don't monitor.

Jones said neither knew how to swim and were out after hours.

Rescue crews from multiple agencies responded to the scene and searched the waters for about three hours Sunday. The search resumed Monday and the bodies were discovered about 10 a.m.
