Search Continues For Man Missing In The Waters Of Pardee 

The search is continuing today, for a man reported missing in the waters of Pardee Reservoir.   According to the Amador Sheriff’s Office, Saturday evening about 8:45, the dispatch center received the report of a male subject in the water at Pardee reservoir.  According to the reporting party, they saw the man in the water struggling to stay afloat approximately ½ mile from the Pardee marina boat ramp.  Before the reporting party could get to the subject to assist him, he went below the surface and did not come back up.  Deputies responded to the scene with the assistance of East Bay Municipal District Rangers to mark the location and recover a boat associated to the missing person.  A boat trailer and vehicle were also located in the marina parking lot.  On Sunday members of the Amador County Marine Unit and Dive Team responded to the area and with the use of side scan sonar conducted a search for the subject, but were not able to make a recovery.  Today the search continues with the assistance of a remotely operated underwater vehicle from the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office.  Officials say the search has been hampered by the approximate 80-90 foot depths of the reservoir in the search area.
