LAKE WYLIE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say one man has drowned and another is missing on Lake Wylie in York County.

Coroner Sabrina Gast told media outlets the body of 40-year-old Lester Cook III was found about 30 minutes after he fell in the water while working on a dock north of Rock Hill.

Authorities say witnesses initially thought Cook jumped in the water to keep working, but called 911 after he didn’t surface.

Divers are also looking for a second man on Lake Wylie. Authorities say the man’s boat broke down Friday morning near the Buster Boyd Bridge and he jumped into to swim for help and hasn’t been seen since.

Authorities say a woman on was rescued from the drifting boat some time later.
