(KSL News) Crews will be back at Utah Lake for the third day, this morning, looking for the body of a missing boater.

So far, they've found no sign of 18-year-old Joseph Lawrence of Taylorsville.

Lawrence and his older brother were sailing on Utah Lake Sunday, when Joseph jumped in the water to fix the boat's rudder. Moments later, the boat capsized.

The older brother hung on and was rescued, but Joseph disappeared.

Utah County authorities say the sailboat was too small for Utah Lake's conditions, including three-foot swells on Sunday.
