LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – Authorities are continuing their search for a man last seen Saturday afternoon taking a swim in Lake Eustis after jumping into the water from a boat.

The search was taking place about a half-mile north of State Road 441.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that the man and a woman were boating in Lake Eustis when the two decided to jump in the water for a swim. Officials said the boat was not anchored and started to drift.

The woman made it back to the boat, but the man is still missing, officials said.

The FWC and Lake County Sheriff's Office personnel were back out at Lake Eustis Sunday still searching him.

No other details were given.
