Authorities are still looking for a swimmer who is presumed to have drowned in Warm Creek Bay Friday.

The man was reported missing Friday afternoon, the National Park Service reports. Authorities said 26-year-old Colby Roman, from Scottsdale, Ariz., was swimming near a houseboat Friday when high winds pushed the boat away from him and another swimmer.

Three people who were on the houseboat were able to rescue one of the swimmers, but Roman slipped under the waves and hasn’t been found.

Authorities with the National Park Service and the Utah Highway Patrol have searched the waters with air, water and sonar resources, but the search has turned up nothing.
