Man Drowns at Toledo Bend – Another Man Missing
Another tragedy on Toledo Bend Reservoir. One man has drowned an another man is missing.
Sabine Sheriff Aaron Mitchell says the two men were reported missing Saturday afternoon from near Solan's Camp on the north end of the lake. A caller told deputies the men went fishing on Friday and never returned home.
Sabine sheriff's deputies and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agents have recovered one body. That happened at about 8pm Saturday night. Crews will be back on the lake again today searching for the other man.
This is the second tragedy on the lake in two weeks.
Back on March 4 a Lake Charles man drowned when the boat he and a friend were in sank. There were high winds on the lake causing rough water which apparently swamped the boat. The body of 52-year-old Alfred D. Jackson was recovered from Toledo Bend around 6 p.m. that evening.
Both men where wearing life vests. The other man was found clinging to a tree stump.
