PENN RUN — Rescue crews are searching for a boater who reportedly dove underwater but didn't resurface at Yellow Creek State Park.

The Indiana Gazette (http://bit.ly/16G12nK ) reports that a water rescue call was made to dispatchers at 8:48 a.m. Saturday. The park is about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Divers in scuba gear fanned out in a search pattern, looking for any sign of the victim.

The boater, who witnesses said was a man, was last seen diving in an area near a boat launch.
