When they got to the scene, officers learned that a man entered the lake earlier that day around 10:45 a.m.

Members of Virginia Beach Police, Fire, and EMS responded to the scene to help with the search, however, it was eventually suspended due to inclement weather in the area.

On Sunday, Nov. 7, a second search was conducted by members of VBEMS, VBFD and VBPD Special Operations Bureau along with the Dive Team and Aviation Squad who used drone technology. The man still could not be located.
