Search for missing boater continues at Lake Pueblo


Search and rescue crews with Colorado Parks and Wildlife are asking people to stay out of the north picnic area by Lake Pueblo while they search for a missing boater.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office dive team conducted a search and rescue operation after witnesses saw a person fall out of a boat around 12:30 p.m. 

The witnesses told Parks and Wildlife they were fishing when they saw an aluminum boat go by and heard a loud bang. The boat then disappeared. 

They believe at least one person was in the water, but they don’t know exactly who they are looking for.  

After wind hindered their rescue efforts, crews called off the search Monday. They plan to resume Tuesday morning with the help of Colorado Springs Fire Department dive team.
