AUSTIN, Texas- Authorities say they are searching for a boater missing since his vehicle was found with the engine running on a boat ramp at a central Texas lake.

Capt. Danny Villalobos of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says the man was reported missing Saturday afternoon at Canyon Lake, about 40 miles north of San Antonio. He says the man appeared to have taken his boat for a short test ride alone and didn't return.

Villalobos says the boat was recovered. The search was suspended
early Sunday morning before resuming several hours later.
