DES MOINES – Polk County Authorities are continuing the search for a man who fell off a boat into Saylorville Lake yesterday and did not resurface.

Authorities recieved multiple 9-1-1 calls around 5pm Monday evening and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office responded along with multiple other agencies.

Authorities were unable to find the missing man last night and are continuing the search this morning.

“Right now we’ve got it concentrated in the one area where we are at. We’re on the north end of the lake by the mile long bridge on the west side of the bridge. so right now were just kind of concentrating our efforts here to hopefully bring this to a resolve.” Evans said.
