[ARCHIVED] Missing Swimmer Found in Apparent Drowning

A missing 33-year-old Mountlake Terrace man was found in Lake Ballinger today after an intensive search that took place in the evening of July 19 and morning of July 20.  The man appeared to have died from drowning.

On Sunday, July 19, at 7:48 p.m., Mountlake Terrace officers were dispatched to the Ballinger Lake Park located at the 23000 block of Lakeview Drive for a report of a missing swimmer. It was reported that a 33-year-old male told his family that he was going to swim from the beach to the island in the middle of the lake. After about an hour, his family became concerned. Mountlake Terrace Police, South County Fire and the Snohomish County Sheriffs Dive Team responded and search efforts were unsuccessful on Sunday evening.

On Monday, July 20 at approximately 9:00 a.m., the Snohomish County Dive Team resumed their search efforts and discovered the male subject approximate 30 yards from shore.

The beach and Ballinger Park are closed until further notice. For more information, contact Commander Pat Lowe at (425) 670-8260.
