Man disappears in ETX lake

LAKE CHEROKEE, TX (KLTV) -

Authorities from several agencies are searching for an East Texan who disappeared on Lake Cherokee.

We are told officials have searched by air, ground and on the water for the man who authorities say was last seen on the north side of the lake. 

Game Warden Captain Quint Balkcom said his office was notified around 2 a.m. Tuesday to assist Rusk County Sheriff's Deputies in searching for 44-year-old Kim Grounds of Mount Enterprise.

A family member said Grounds went boating with his girlfriend Monday night; the girlfriend later returned with the boat, but Grounds was no where to be found. 

Neighbors said they watched as a helicopter and multiple boats searched the water for clues that could lead them to Grounds.
