Search continues for man missing in lake

KELSEYVILLE – Rescuers continue to search the lake for a Vacaville man who fell from his boat Saturday evening.


The Lake County Sheriff's Marine Patrol reported Sunday that they had received a report at 5:19 p.m. Saturday that John Stockton had fallen from the back of his boat and into the water.


Stockton, who went into the water near Buckingham Point, didn't resurface, according to the report from LCSO Lt. Gary Basor.


LCSO's Search and Rescue efforts began immediately, reported Basor. Air Ambulance Reach 6 was called and responded within nine minutes, flying over the area where Stockton was last seen in an attempt to locate him.


Search and Rescue brought in a water search dog at 8 p.m. to search the water from a boat, said Basor. However, by midnight, rescuers had not yet located Stockton.


The search resumed Sunday at 8 a.m., Basor noted, led by LCSO and the North Shore Dive Team.


Basor reported that LCSO requested mutual aid through the state Office of Emergency Services for search dogs and dive teams with sophisticated sonar equipment.


Alameda County, Sonoma County, Sacramento County and the California Rescue Dog Association responded, according to Basor.


Basor reported Sunday afternoon that Stockton still had not been found.
