Henderson man goes missing while swimming at Lake Mead

A search crew is looking for a Henderson man who went missing while swimming in Lake Mead on Saturday.

A group of people saw the man swimming without a life jacket near Castle Reef in the Boulder Basin and called Lake Mead officials shortly before 5 p.m. to report that he appeared to be struggling, according to the National Park Service.

Parks officials looked for him for two hours Saturday before ending the search because of dangerous wind gusts.​ They resumed the search Sunday and are continuing it today.
