For over a decade, you knew exactly what you were getting with a "Fast & Furious" movie. You went to see one of these movies, you got fast cars, gratuitous shots of women, dumb one-liners, ruminations on family during the slow parts, and completely implausible action sequences. The movies were fun if you were in the right mood and grating if you weren't, but they never aspired to be anything more.

Nearly four months of searching by Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff ended Tuesday when a dive team discovered a body in the Lake Pueblo State Park reservoir.

Pueblo County Coroner Brian Cotter later identified the victim as 61-year-old Frank Montoya of Aguilar. Montoya was last seen Dec. 10 when he and a friend, Kimberlie Temple, 57, also of Aguilar, left on a fishing trip.

The pair vanished while boating in a 1978 17-foot Stryker, leaving Montoya's pickup and boat trailer in the parking area at the south boat ramp.
