LEWISVILLE, Texas — Officials in Lewisville say a man’s body was recovered in Lake Lewisville Saturday. Witnesses told authorities the man jumped off a boat and didn’t resurface.

The man wasn’t identified.

Officials say they responded to Westlake Park on the lake at about 5:45 p.m. Saturday after a 9-1-1 call came in about a 27-year-old man who disappeared after jumping off a boat. 

Two Lewisville Fire Department dive team boats and a Game Warden boat responded to help with the search, and all three used sonar to try to find the man, officials say.
