Search underway on Storm Lake

Saturday, July 6, 2002

Local authorities are currently searching off the west side of Chautauqua Park for a man after the boat he was in apparently capsized on Storm Lake early Saturday evening.

Members of the Buena Vista County Sheriff's Office and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources used motorboats and Jet Skis to search the water and shore from the west side of the Chautauqua Park jetty to the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Lake Avenue.

Members of the Storm Lake Police Department and Fire Department searched along the lake's shore.

The search approximately began at 6 p.m.

At about 8 p.m., Okoboji Underwater Search and Rescue arrived with divers to further search.

As of 8:30 p.m., searchers had not turned up anything.

Check Tuesday's Pilot-Tribune for more details.
