Missing boater on Chautauqua Lake identified; search continues

The missing boater on Chautauqua Lake has been identified as Timothy D. Yocum, 47, of Falconer, the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office reported Sunday evening.

Searchers from 10 law enforcement and emergency response agencies had not found Yocum as of 7 p.m. Sunday, the sheriff's office said. They planned to continue searching until dark and resume their operations Monday morning, if necessary.

Sheriff's Navigation Patrol boats immediately responded after Yocum was reported missing at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Deputies said he apparently jumped off a boat Saturday for a swim.
