PROVO -- A boat that capsized on Utah Lake Monday afternoon has been found, but there is still no sign of one man who was on it.

Search teams found the flat-bottom boat Thursday afternoon about mile from where it flipped. The boat was upside-down and completely submerged in the water.

Six men were on board at the time of the incident. After swimming for three hours, one of the men did make it to shore and called 911. Search and rescue teams then found the other four throughout the night.

The sixth, Lon Thongthipvoravong of Orem, is still missing and presumed dead.
