Rescue teams searched a Little Canada lake Saturday afternoon for a male swimmer who went missing.

The Pioneer Press says the man was trying to swim across Gervais Lake with another man Saturday around 3:30 p.m. when he disappeared.

Sgt. John Eastham with the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office told BringMeTheNews the individual was not found Saturday. The search is suspended over night for the safety of the divers and those in the boat, and is expected to resume Sunday morning, he said.

The city of Little Canada, on its website, says the lake is "heavily used" for swimming during the summer – but notes that "due to budget cuts," no lifeguards are on duty at the beach.

The sheriff's office tweeted the Water Patrol an Dive Team are on the scene.

Authorities have not identified the man they're searching for.
