Man goes missing during swim in Lake Havasu

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are searching Lake Havasu for a man who went missing overnight gusty winds distanced him from his boat.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter says divers are searching waterways and the shoreline for the 62-year-old, who was reported missing around 5:30 p.m. Monday north of Parker Dam.

Carter says he was on a boat with his wife and a family friend.

He then jumped into the water and high winds pushed the boat away just as he was swimming toward it.

Carter says others on board tried to throw a rope and make their way back to him.

The man was not wearing a lifejacket.
