The Coventry Township Fire Department continues its search for a missing swimmer Thursday morning.

Justin Khamvongsouk, 18, went missing in the swim zone in Cottage Grove Lake, near Goodyear Boating Wednesday around 2:20 p.m.

Authorities say an 18-year-old female said she and Khamvongsouk were swimming off a privately-owned boat between the Akron Yacht Club and Sandy Beach Marina when the boat started to drift away.

Khamvongsouk, a recent graduate of Coventry High School, was unable to swim back to the boat.

The female said she attempted to rescue him but was unable to find him when he went underwater.

Crews searched for six hours Wednesday night before stopping the search due to weather.

The search resumed Thursday morning at 8 a.m.
