BOULDER CITY, Nevada – Authorities at Lake Mead National Recreation Area continue their search Tuesday for a male boater who reportedly went missing within the park on Saturday.

NPS spokeswoman Christie Vanover said around 9 a.m. on Saturday, the Lake Mead Interagency Communication Center received a call, reporting an overdue boater. Around 1 p.m. a Nevada Department of Wildlife game warden found the missing person’s vessel unoccupied on Lake Mead.

Brian W. Yule, 69, is described as a white male with gray hair and green eyes. He is 6 feet tall and weighs around 200 pounds. He was last seen around noon Aug. 10 leaving Callville Bay Marina on his blue and white 25-foot sailing vessel.

Vanover said it is not clear if Saturday’s severe weather was a factor at this time, but they are investigating that aspect. Mohave County and parts of Clark County, Lake Mead included, were inundated with heavy winds and rain around 6 p.m.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts and anyone who saw his boat is asked to call the Lake Mead Dispatch Center at 702-293-8998.

The National Park Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife and Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department have been searching the area by land, water and air. The incident is under investigation.
