According the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, dive teams are searching Lake Wateree for a missing boater.

 Officers reportedly were called to Lake Wateree shortly after 8:30 Sunday evening after a woman jumped off a pontoon boat and never came back up. To make matters worse, the boat was said to have been drifting.

The search was halted in the early morning hours Monday, but the search has resumed.

According to website SCIWAY – the 13,250-acre lake was created by damming the Wateree River in 1920. The lake is owned and maintained by Duke Energy.
