Police Searching For Body Of Missing Fisherman In Stevens County

Posted: Updated:

STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. - Right now the Spokane County Sheriff Dive Team are at Waitts Lake in Stevens County searching for the body of a man who went into the water Saturday.

Police tell KHQ it happened around 6:00am Saturday morning. The man was out fishing on the lake with his wife and another person, when he hooked a fish. However during the attempt to reel in the fish, the man lost his grip on the pole and it went into the water. Police say the man went in after his pole without a life jacket and never made it back into the boat.

Right now the Spokane County Sheriff Dive Team are in the process of trying to recover the body using sonar and a cadaver dog.

Police have not identified the man, but told KHQ Sunday that he is in his 40's.

KHQ has a crew up at Waitts Lake gathering more information and we will update this story as soon as anything new becomes available.
