Divers Searching For Man Who Is Feared Drowned

It began as a day just enjoying the water.   Authorities say the victim and another person were both riding on a jet ski when they suddenly fell off.   That accident happened around 7 this evening at the Cedar Creek Reservoir in Henderson County.

It's off Farm to Market Road 334 near Gun Barrel City.   Police tell us the driver of the jet ski was rescued from the water but the passenger hasn't been located.   The 24 year old male was not wearing a life jacket.   Sunday night, several volunteer rescue boats are dragging the lake in a search pattern and divers are ready to go in.

No word yet on what caused the victim and the driver to fall off of the jet ski.
