The Laurel County Sheriff's Department is conducting a missing person investigation after receiving a report from Holly Bay at Laurel Lake that a man’s unoccupied pontoon boat had been found.

The boat was found Thursday evening off Marshes Branch, 13 miles west of London, near a small island on Laurel Lake.

The sheriff's department says Clarence Holmes 32, of Berea was driving his pontoon around the lake trying to help people moor their houseboats before an approaching storm hit.

Authorities say waves on the lake were reported to be seven to eight feet tall. Holmes was last seen around 3 p.m. Thursday. A search of the area was conducted, but Holmes was not located. The search for Holmes resumed Friday morning.

The missing man’s personal belongings were found on his pontoon boat.

Agencies involved in the search include the U.S. Forest Service Officer and Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.
