Local emergency responders are investigating a drowning at Belton Lake.

So far, they have not released the name or age of the man they are searching for. 

Sadly, this isn't the first death at the lake this year. Kentrell Jordan Chandler, 17, of Temple, drowned in Belton Lake while swimming May 17.

In October, a Gatesville man jumped to his death from a bridge over the lake trying to escape police. The drop was roughly 50 to 60 feet into the water, police said.
