A man who jumped into a Florida lake Saturday to retrieve his sunglasses went under and is still missing.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, as of Sunday, still had not found 32-year-old Cornelius Wiggins, of Plant City, the Lakeland Ledger reported.
Their search will continue Monday.
Wiggins was on a boat with Julie Bryant, 69, and Drucilla Bounget, 53, around 5 p.m. when his glasses fell into Lake Gibson in Lakeland. After he jumped in, Bryant turned the boat around to throw Wiggins a floating cushion, the FWC told the Ledger.
Bryant then jumped into the water to try to help Wiggins when the flotation device wasn’t enough.
As of 1 p.m. Sunday, a dive team was still looking for his body.
