The search for an Omaha man who is presumed dead in an Arkansas lake has been called off, family members said Friday.
Officials told the family of Michael C. Burton that the decision was made after more than 100 dives turned up no sign of the 28-year-old who was last seen Saturday morning. He and a friend were spearfishing at Beaver Lake near Rogers, Ark.
Authorities used sonar equipment and cadaver dogs in the search, but they said recovery efforts were hampered by trees and other debris in the lake. They believe Burton's body is 60 feet deep, possibly trapped in the debris.
