(Update)-Search For Storm Lake Drowning Victim Continues

Storm Lake, IA (KICD)–Search efforts for an Ireton man who drowned on Storm Lake have been hampered by high winds and rough water conditions.

The Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Office, area dive teams and the Iowa DNR suspended their search at 1:30 on Friday after several hours of searching for 28-year-old Jaime Adan Jaime-Vazquez.  The search will resume today.

Vazquez and 38-year-old Abel Troncoso of Granville were fishing around 4:00 Thursday afternoon when their boat capsized.  Troncoso was rescued by another boat in the area unharmed.  Vazquez however slipped beneath the water. He was reportedly not wearing a life vest.
