WACO, Texas – Search crews have returned to Lake Waco in the search for a missing man.

The Waco Police Department tells FOX44 that police, fire crews, Texas Game Wardens, and park rangers with the U.S. Corps of Engineers began the search Thursday in an area between the Ridgewood Country Club Marina and the Twin Bridges Day Use Park. Search and Rescue boats are also patrolling the area.

Fire rescue personnel were told a jet ski had overturned about 400-500 yards straight out from the pier at the Ridgewood Country Club marina.

Police say crews are searching for a 23-year-old man who was a passenger on an overturned watercraft . The woman on the jet ski was rescued by a boat passing by.

Fire personnel used a Zodiac boat to help with the search with game wardens using their own boats.

It was noted that the search area was quite wide.

Without adequate lighting the search was suspended until daylight Friday when the search resumed.
