Austin/Travis County EMS searched for a person missing in Lake Travis Sunday evening.

According to ATCEMS, a call was received around 6:30 p.m. about a male in his 20's who was with a group of friends swimming near the VIP Marina on Lake Travis and became distressed and went under water but did not resurface.

Multiple rescue assets were deployed, including STARFlight and boats from Travis County Sheriff's Office and Lake Travis Fire Rescue, but after 20 minutes the rescue effort was switched to recovery mode, which is standard.

Boat teams reported that water is as deep as 100 feet in the search area.

Travis County Sheriff's Office will take over recovery efforts with a dive team.
