Search Continues for Missing Teen on Black Bayou

The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office resumed their search today for a teen missing on Black Bayou.

The 14-year-old boy reportedly went underwater after the Jon boat he and three friends were fishing from capsized around 7:00 PM Saturday, spilling all of the boys into the lake. None of the young boaters were wearing a life vest. The others in the boat – aged 17, 16, and 15 – tried to help the 14-year-old, but were unable rescue him. They swam to the bank, and one was able to flag down a citizen, who called 911.

Caddo Sheriff’s deputies, the CPSO Marine Unit, and CPSO Dive Team, along with LA Wildlife and Fisheries agents, responded to the scene off Hwy. 1 in Rodessa and searched until 10:30 PM Saturday night. They returned Sunday morning around 7:30 AM and searched again until 4:00 PM.

Marine Unit Lt. Donna Jackson said divers are searching a small area about 100 feet wide, however the search has been complicated by underwater debris and obstacles such as trees, stumps, logs, and trot lines.

Officials returned to the area again this morning for day three of the search.
