Blotter: Man goes missing on Lewisville Lake

A 33-year-old Dallas County man went missing on Lewisville Lake on Friday night.

The man — who has yet to be identified — went off a double-decker party boat he was on with his family near The Colony at Pier 121 Marina, Game Warden Daron Blackerby said.

The Mesquite man, Blackerby said, was dining with his family at Dinghy Bar and Grill shortly before the accident.

“Around 9:45 p.m., we got a call that a man was missing,” he said. “A relative had jumped into the waters to try and locate him and wasn’t able to.”

Blackerby said the man wasn’t wearing a life jacket.

Texas Parks and Wildlife, along with Lewisville Fire Department divers, were on scene searching for the man Friday night and Saturday morning.

Officials said the man had yet to be located and they expected to resume their search Saturday evening.
