A search is underway for a missing person on Lake Norman in Iredell County Sunday evening.

According to a spokesperson with North Carolina Wildlife, crews are searching for a person who may have drowned in a cove near Queens Landing.

Multiple search crews were set up on High Hill Drive in Mooresville around 7 p.m.

Neighbors said several young adults were seen on a boat in the middle of the cove when they reportedly came back to the dock and asked for help. The boaters had jumped into the water to swim, but one man reportedly did not resurface.

According to boaters, there were people in a rental boat who were searching in the water. Boaters said deputies then arrived and asked them to clear the area.

No other information has been released.
