SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The search for a missing boater on Cross Lake will resume Monday morning.

According to Shreveport Fire Department spokesman Fred Sanders, 3 people were in a boat that was being towed to the boat launch with engine trouble.  At some point, one of them fell out of the boat and into the water.

He has been described as a man in his 40s. His name has not been released.

Divers with the Shreveport Fire Department attempted a search and recovery for the man Sunday, Sanders said. But the search was suspended at 5 p.m., and efforts are now being described as a recovery mission.

Members of the Shreveport Police lake patrol unit will resume searching for the boater Monday morning.

Crews are not sure how far out in the lake the person fell into the water.
