LUCAS, Ky. (AP) - Crews are searching Barren River Lake for a man who went underwater while swimming and didn’t resurface.

Glasgow-Barren County Emergency Management Director Tracy Shirley told media that the man was reported missing Sunday while cliff diving with friends at an area known as the Narrows.

Meanwhile, the bodies of two other men reported missing in waterways in the region over the last few days have been recovered.
