North Texas Rescuers Searching For Lake Drowning Victims

July 05, 2018 - 5:52 am

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Searchers will return this morning to Lake Granbury and Lake Grapevine to look for two alleged drowning victims. 

The shores of Granbury City Park were packed shoulder-to-shoulder for Independence Day when a Cleburne man reportedly disappeared in the water.

Friends told divers where they had last seen him and the search began. The Fire Department also brought in boats and they looked until after the fireworks show with no luck.

Another alleged drowning victim is still missing at Lake Grapevine where a Flower Mound man fell off a sail boat Tuesday night.

Searchers spent the afternoon looking until they had to abandon the search after dark. Their efforts were complicated because Tuesday night's high winds blew the sail boat far from where the man went overboard, so it was nearly impossible to narrow down the search area.
