PENTICTON - Search and Rescue volunteers and the RCMP dive team have joined the search for a missing man in Osoyoos Lake today.

The 34-year-old man from West Vancouver went missing after falling of a personal watercraft into the lake around 6 p.m., Sunday, June 28, according to a RCMP media release.

Police say the missing man was riding on the jet ski with a woman, who flagged down a nearby sailboat and was rescued. Investigators do not believe the man was wearing a personal floatation device. 

An extensive search of the lake prior to nightfall was conducted Sunday night by officers and several boaters, but no sign of the man.

The search resumed late this morning after being delayed by bad weather.

The missing man's name hasn't been released.
