Sheriff Ben Wolfinger says Gary Scott Shawver of Post Falls jumped into the lake Saturday to retrieve an item that had fallen from a boat.
Wolfinger says Shawver didn’t have on a life jacket and couldn’t get back to the boat.
The Sheriff’s Dive Rescue Team couldn’t locate Shawver in the water that’s about 130 feet deep.
Wolfinger in a statement on Sunday says another attempt will be made using sonar when the weather in the area clears.
