Anthony Pacheco, 55, of Leadville, left his home at about 8 a.m. with his dog to go fishing on the lake, said Lisa Burke, a Sheriff's spokeswoman. "I understand it was very windy," on the lake.
His family reported him missing at 10:57 p.m. when he didn't return home Saturday. Lake County Search and Rescue personnel were then contacted and were on scene at 1:09 a.m.
Searchers earlier found a capsized flat-bottom boat on the lake.
The dog has been found alive and searchers also found two oars on an island in the lake near Leadville. They haven't confirmed that the oars belong to Pacheco.
