Report of capsized boat in Utah Lake not confirmed
First Published Jun 08 2013 08:20 pm • Last Updated Jun 08 2013 10:29 pm

Officials in Utah County have called off a search after finding no evidence that a boat capsized on Utah Lake after checking on a report of an overturned boat that came in about 7 p.m.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon said a search and rescue plane was sent to scan the water, but found "no evidence of a capsized boat." No further reports have come in, Cannon said, and officials have been unable to make contact with the man who made the report. Cannon said a man in a boat told people on shore that there was a capsized boat, but then left the park.

"We don’t know that there’s actually anybody who’s in distress," Cannon said.

Cannon said there have been no reports of people missing but said officials would continue to monitor the lake just in case.
