Search Resumes For Landscaper Missing In Flooding
LAS VEGAS (AP) – Crews plan to resume their search for a landscape worker who was possibly swept away during a downpour at a Las Vegas-area golf course.
Police say the man was last seen a little after 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Desert Rose Golf Course near Sahara Avenue and Nellis Boulevard.
Photos show the backhoe he was using was almost completely submerged in floodwaters. Family members tell KVVU-TV that 38-year-old Calletano Lopez hasn’t answered his phone and doesn’t know how to swim.
Police say they searched for Lopez before sunset Tuesday and have resumed the effort Wednesday.
