An 86-year-old man who went missing Friday was found dead under a bridge near an aqueduct in Lancaster on Monday.

The man’s 78-year-old brother, authorities said, is still missing and officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department vowed to continue the search for him Tuesday in the water.

Minas Khacheryan and his younger brother, Grigor Khacheryan, were reported missing Friday by family.

Sheriff officials said the two had been last seen Friday morning in the 1000 block of East Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale. By Monday, officials said the two had been spotted fishing near the California aqueduct.

Family reported being concerned for the two. Grigor Khacheryan recently had open heart surgery.

The cause of death is still under investigation, officials said, but no foul play is suspected.

In a statement, sheriff officials said they would continue the search for Grigor Khacheryan with the help of two dozen divers who would be using sonar to search the water at the aqueduct.
