On Sunday, shortly before 4 p.m., a 911 caller reported witnessing a man who was not wearing a life jacket struggling in the water at Lopez Lake. Rescue crews arrived at the scene, along with help from a CHP helicopter. 

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Dive Team searched for a body in the lake Sunday evening but failed to find one. The dive team resumed its search Monday morning, but rescue crews did not find a body until Tuesday.

Sheriff’s officials have yet to release the identity of the apparent drowning victim. 

Cal Fire personnel also assisted with the search and rescue efforts.
