LAKE MEAD (FOX5) -
The search for a boater who went missing at Lake Mead on Thursday resumed Friday morning.
Christie Vanover, a spokesperson for the National Park Service, said 35-year-old Chicago man disappeared about 4 p.m. after he jumped into the lake near Sentinel Island. Family members identified the person as Istvan Tibor Feichtner, according to NPS.
Vanover said the search was called off about 7 p.m. Thursday because of high winds, but resumed about 7 a.m. Friday.
On Friday, the search resumed at about 6:30 a.m. A total of four boats were used to search the waters before the operation was suspended by 1:30 p.m.
The search is slated to resume on Saturday.
The missing man was not wearing a life jacket, according to Vanover.
