Crew resumes search for missing swimmer at Lake Travis

Austin

Crews  have returned to Lake Travis Sunday morning to resume the search for a missing swimmer.

Travis County Sheriff’s Office said around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, a family member called to report that the swimmer, a man in his 50s was seen going under water but never resurfaced. 

Multiple agencies descended on the area near Tom Huges Park and searched for nearly two hours. The operation was then switched from rescue mode to recovery mode. The search was adjourned that evening due to darkness, TCSO says.

The department says a team of divers will meet at 9 a.m. Sunday to plan target locations and begin their search.

TCSO currently has two boats in the water doing grid and sonar searches in the area where the man was last seen.
