Divers search for possible third drowning victim on Lake Travis

The search continues today for a person who disappeared under water while boating with friends on Lake Travis yesterday. Roger Wade with the Travis County Sheriff's Office said the person went under in water that is 125 feet deep. 

"We have our underwater remote-controlled vehicle searching some of the deeper areas and divers searching some of the not-so-deep areas," said Wade. He urges anyone who plans to go out on the water to wear a life jacket. This could be the third drowning on Lake Travis this year.
