Search for missing man under way near Leadville

DENVER - Authorities say they have found a capsized boat on Turquoise Lake near Leadville, but the man believed to have been fishing from it is still missing.

The Denver Post reports Anthony Pacheco left his home with his dog at about 8 a.m. Saturday, and his family reported him missing when he hadn't returned by 10 p.m.

Lisa Burke, a spokeswoman for the Lake County Sheriff's Office, says it was very windy on the lake Saturday.

A dive team is searching the lake, but the operation is still considered a rescue attempt.

The dog has been found alive.
