The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a boater who went missing Sunday afternoon.

MCSO says around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, a group of people that had rented a boat to swim near the Fireman’s Cove area noticed that 24-year-old Chintan Shan had disappeared. The group boated up and down the area, and eventually went back to the marina to get help from MCSO.

Officials told ABC15 there was a drowning call at the lake on Sunday, officials showed up and searched the area, but no one was located. Sunday's call is connected to the missing boater. MCSO talked to family members who said they have not heard from him.

Search efforts continue in the area. Anyone with any information on Shan or his whereabouts is urged to call the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
