Search continues for man missing at Lake Mead

Search and rescue crews are looking for a man who went missing Sunday afternoon at Lake Mead.

Lake Mead officials received a call about 1:30 p.m. about a man who jumped off a boat near the Boulder Basin but never resurfaced, according to the National Park Service.

A witness told the Park Service that the man was wearing a life jacket, but it came off when he jumped into the water.

Park rangers, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Nevada Wildlife Department responded to the scene and began searching for the man, officials said. They believe he is about half a mile from the shoreline in an area that is 8 to 160 feet deep.
