LINDON — Searchers began dragging the bottom of Utah Lake on Tuesday, hoping to find the body of 37-year-old Tam Huynh.
Crews have focused their search on the northeast section of the lake near the Lindon boat harbor. That's where they found Huynh's fishing boat Saturday with the key on and set at half throttle.
"(It's) where we have something we drag behind the boat, trying to catch any objects or other things at the bottom of the lake," Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Eldon Packer said.
For several days, crews have combed an area where they think the man fell into the water. Authorities have used divers, sonar and a plane to thoroughly cover an area about 1 mile wide and 3 miles long.
For the past four days, Huynh's family has quietly kept watch. They left incense along the jetty, where they continue to wait and pray for a miracle.
"They're great people. They really are,” Packer said. “This is a terrible tragedy for them, and we're hoping to bring some type of closure for them."
Crews planned to continue searching until dark Tuesday and then re-evaluate their plans for Wednesday.
