One swimmer who went missing in Grapevine Lake was found Sunday afternoon, but a search continues for another man who went into the lake Saturday afternoon, a fire official said.

A man out swimming with his family Sunday afternoon at Grapevine Lake went missing, but a dive team located him within 30 minutes and rushed him to a local hospital, a fire official said.

A search continued Sunday for another man who went missing in the lake Saturday afternoon.

In the Sunday incident, a 25-year-old was out swimming without a life jacket when he went missing near Rockledge Park.

He was reported missing at 12:04 p.m., but a dive team located him just before 12:30 p.m., Assistant Fire Chief John Sherwood said in a Sunday telephone interview.

He was rushed to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Grapevine. His condition was not available.

The search continued Sunday afternoon for a 38-year-old man who went missing in the lake Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday, people were enjoying the day with the 38-year-old man when he jumped from a pontoon boat and never resurfaced, Sherwood said..

"He was down about 10 minutes before 911 was called," Sherwood said.

The pontoon boat was on the north side of the lake when the swimmer jumped in the lake, and members of the Grapevine dive team were concentrating their search in that area, Sherwood said.

Officials with the Flower Mound Fire Department, Texas Game Wardens and the Grapevine Fire Department are assisting in the search, Sherwood said.

The names of the men had not been released by authorities.
