BOULDER CITY (KSNV MyNews3.com) – The National Park Service is searching for a 45-year-old Henderson man who was last seen Saturday in the water near Castle Reef in the Boulder Basin of Lake Mead.

According to a news release, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area Interagency Communication Center received a 911 call at 4:44 p.m. Saturday reporting that the man had disappeared underwater. Witnesses said he was swimming and began to struggle. He was not wearing a life-jacket.

The National Park Service and Nevada Department of Wildlife began an immediate search from the point where he was last seen. Around 7:15 p.m., efforts were suspended because of unsafe weather conditions. Winds were gusting at 20 to 30 mph.

Search efforts resumed Sunday and continue today. The incident remains under investigation.
