Saylorville Lake searched for man who jumped in



Authorities have resumed the search for a Perry man who jumped off a boat into Saylorville Lake, which sits north-northwest of Des Moines.

 

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says several agencies were cooperating in the search Wednesday morning. Dive teams and boats with sonar gear are deployed.

 

The office says it was notified about the incident a little before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Witnesses say the man leaped into the water off a pontoon boat near the Cherry Glen boat ramp and didn't surface. Searchers scoured the area into the night's darkness but didn't find the man or his body.

 

The Sheriff's Office identified the man as 23-year-old Luis Cuadra.
