Rangers looking for man missing at Lake Mohave

 LAS VEGAS -- The National Park Service is looking for a man who disappeared at Lake Mohave Saturday afternoon.

According to the park service, at around noon, their communication center received a call that a man had jumped off a boat into the lake and began to struggle. He was last seen going under the water. Witnesses say he was not wearing a life jacket.

Park service rangers, Nevada Department of Wildlife game wardens and employees near the Cottonwood Cove Marina started searching for him. He is believed to be around 100 yards from the shore. Water in the area is between 80 and 100-feet deep.  

Recent storms have made the water murkier than usually, making the search more difficult.
