Search and rescue teams are still looking for a fisherman who's been missing on Bear Lake since late Monday night.

Kimberly Houk reports.

The Bear Lake Authorities were called out at 11:30 Monday night to search for the fisherman when he didn't come home.

Since then, the Rich County Search and Rescue, Utah Public Safety, Idaho State Parks, and the Rich County Sherriff's office have all been searching by air and on the water. They found his capsized boat yesterday morning at 8:15.

They still have not located the missing 49-year-old man identified as Robert Israel from Cache County.

Search and rescue crews will be out on the lake again today looking for the him.

Authorities say the man was fishing alone at the time of his disappearance.

Police are asking anyone who was fishing on the lake during this time to contact the Bear Lake State Park if they have any information.

Police dispatch tells us it's been very cold at Bear Lake in the last couple of days, with temperature in the teens and some windy conditions.
