Law enforcement officials are searching for a boater who went missing Saturday afternoon on Chautauqua Lake.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of the missing man at 5:30 Saturday, with a preliminary investigation suggesting that the man had jumped into the water for a swim at the time he went missing.
A number of area fire departments joined the search, assisted by Starflight helicopters searching from the air.
The boater’s name has not yet been released, and the victim has not been reported as having been found at this time. The investigation is continuing, and officials say more information will be released at a later time.
