The man who was the object of a search of the waters of Sandy Lake over the weekend has been identified as 29 year-old Jason Mathieson, of Sandy Lake.

Mathieson is still missing.

Officials say Mathieson and two other individuals were in a boat that capsized sometime before 5:00 AM Friday morning.  The other two boaters, 30 year-old Jason Greggs and 30 year-old Nicki Heister, were able to swim to shore.

A search involving fire and rescue personnel, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and a diving team from Jamestown could not locate a body.

Although the official search was called off on Sunday, family members and friends say they will continue to keep looking.
