Search Continues For Lake Mead Swimmers

Crews are still searching for two swimmers who disappeared during a gusty weekend at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Rangers say they're looking for a man who jumped off a boat for a swim at Lake Mohave south of Willow Beach. Another man was reported missing after he'd been swimming near the Boulder Islands on Lake Mead.

Authorities say neither of the missing swimmers was wearing a life jacket, and winds had been gusting between 20 and 30 mph throughout the afternoon.
