CAPE FAIR, Mo. -- A three hour search for a reported missing swimmer turns up nothing at Table Rock Lake Monday night.
CAPE FAIR, Mo. -- A three hour search for a reported missing swimmer turns up nothing at Table Rock Lake Monday night.

The Southern Stone County Fire Protection District says a 7-year old boy reported seeing a swimmer go under the water and not come back up.  The boy told rescuers it happened about 6:00 pm at the Cape Fair Public Use Area.  He described the swimmer as a 12-20 year old male.

Eric Nielsen, the public information officer for Southern Stone County FD says fire department and Indian Point divers searched the shallow cove and used sonar, but came up with nothing.  Searchers say they didn't doubt the young boy's word, but could find nothing to substantiate it.
