SHARE S.L. man sought in lake search

Search and rescue teams from Salt Lake and Davis counties were searching Friday night for a 50-year-old Salt Lake man who was missing in the Great Salt Lake.

The man had been sailing with a female companion when around 6:30 p.m., he attempted to pull in the sails on the boat and fell into the water, Salt Lake County sheriff's deputy Peggy Faulkner said. The woman was unable to help him and radioed the marina.

Salt Lake County Search and Rescue and Davis County Dive Team members were expected to continue the search for the man late Friday night.

The woman, who doesn't know how to sail, was stranded on the lake until crews arrived.
