A memorial is planned Sunday afternoon for a man presumed dead after a shooting on a lake on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The service for 30-year-old David Hartley, who grew up in
Loveland, will be at a church in Fort Collins. Family members call
the memorial a celebration of life.

Hartley's wife, Tiffany, says he was shot on the Mexican side of
Falcon Lake on Sept. 30 while the two were sightseeing on Jet Skis.
She says she tried to drag her husband's body onto her watercraft
but had to retreat to the U.S. side of the lake as bullets whizzed
by her.

Authorities have not yet found Hartley's body. Officials in
Zapata County, Texas, and Mexico are investigating the case.
