Emergency crews were searching Sunday for a swimmer missing in Lake Conroe. According to officials, a 45-year-old man was on a boat with his family at Lake Conroe on Sunday when he decided to go for a swim.

The man never made it back to the boat, authorities said.

Montgomery County Precinct 1 Lake Patrol combed the area for any sign of the man. Responders said they ended their search when it grew dark and the waters became rough.

Montgomery County officials reported a lot of activity on the lake this holiday weekend. Just Sunday, there were three capsized boats and two arrests for boating while intoxicated.
