The search for the missing Loveland man at Carter Lake has been suspended.  More than 70 searchers from 12 agencies spent over 700 personnel hours searching in and around the lake from April 11 when the Loveland man’s overturned kayak was found in the water until the winter weather ceased search efforts yesterday afternoon.  Searchers used drones, dogs, divers, side scanning sonar, towed sonar arrays, and an underwater remote operated vehicle during the search. 

No further search operations are planned unless new information is obtained leading searchers to a specific area at Carter Lake.

Out of respect for the family and friends of the missing man, LCSO will not be releasing his name as all information to date indicates this incident was a tragic accident and there is no evidence of a crime.
