Authorities Searching For Man Who Fell In Lake Erie

SANDUSKY - Authorities are searching the waters of Sandusky Bay for a man reported missing Friday night.

The Coast Guard, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, are leading the search for a 245 lbs man with blond hair, last seen wearing a black long-sleeve t-shirt.

Just before 7 p.m., Coast Guard watch-standers were notified of an unmanned 12-foot dark green jon boat,  roughly a half mile offshore of Lions Park. The man was not wearing a life-jacket, and witnesses say the saw the man fall out of the boat.

Crews had been searching throughout the night, but were impacted by rain and reduced visibility. 

The water and air temperatures in the search area are in the low 40's.
