COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) — Two men are missing and one men is dead after a boat overturned in Lake Lavon last evening when a strong storm passed through.

A search by water and air was initiated, but the missing men were not found.

The Collin County Sheriff’s Office, Wylie Fire Department, Princeton Fire Department, and Game Wardens are continuing to search for the two remaining men. They are presumed drowned.

The names of the victims are being withheld pending notification of their next of kin.
