DIAMOND LAKE, Ore. — Search and rescue teams began scouring Diamond Lake following reports of a kayaker reported missing after paddling into the lake, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night, dispatchers received reports of a man yelling for help from the water at Diamond Lake, the Sheriff's Office said. No one could see the man, but the callers said that it sounded like he was in distress.

Shortly after those initial calls, dispatch received a missing persons report at Diamond Lake.

Deputies found out that 37-year-old Jared Bruce Boria of Vancouver, Washington had been camping at the nearby campground. On Tuesday night, Boria took a kayak and paddled out into the lake without a life jacket.

"Deputies spoke to several witnesses who reported hearing a male in distress yelling from the water, but were unable to see anyone," DCSO said.

An initial search by deputies, firefighters, and other first responders could not find Boria or the kayak.

On Wednesday, search teams conducted a more extensive search of lake — finding Boria's kayak, paddle, and shoes. They did not find the missing man, however.

Boria is described as a Hispanic man, about six-feet tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

"Search efforts will resume Thursday, July 2nd," DCSO said. "Anyone recreating in the area is asked to be aware of the missing person report and call 9-1-1 with any information which may help the search effort."
