Authorities Sunday continued to look for the body of a man believed to have drowned in Lake Elsinore.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said at around 4 p.m. Saturday that the man had been swimming with a family member near their boat when the boat began to drift away.

That’s when the man went underwater and never resurfaced, sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies combed the lake for hours on Saturday but were unable to locate the man’s body and continued the search on Sunday.

The identity of the man was not disclosed.

In June, a 38-year-old Los Angeles man drowned in Lake Elsinore after he got off his jet ski and went into the water to retrieve a lost item.
