Still No Sign Of Man Who Disappeared In Lake Cachma July 11th

Posted on Thursday, July 17, 2014 4:29pm


The search continued at Lake Cachuma today for a man who disappeared after trying to swim from a broken down boat to shore, but there’s still no sign of him.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department officials say a department helicopter has been used, and county park rangers have been using sonar to try to locate the body of Isaiah Sanchez.

The 22 year old Ventura County man was last seen around 8 p.m. last Friday night.

After he, and another man from the boat apparently got into trouble trying to swim to shore, a third man still on board the boat signaled to people onshore to call for help.

The second man was rescued, but there’s been no sign of Sanchez.

The water has been so murky for the last few days, with zero visibility, divers have not been able to search for the missing man.
