Over the weekend, Lauren Ono, public information officer for South Metro Fire Rescue, told CBS4 the man was not wearing a life jacket at the time he fell into the water. Water conditions were cold the day the man went missing, and Ono said wind was also a factor.
Jason Clay with Colorado Parks & Wildlife said sonar being used over the weekend could have also been affected by weather conditions, as crews continued to searching for the man presumed to have drowned.
