Around 17:00hrs our Fire Boat and CMPD were dispatched to the scene of a lake incident involving a missing person in the water on Mt. Island Lake near Latta Plantation. Throughout the incident, Huntersville Fire, Mt Holly Fire, CMPD & Charlotte Fire boats continued to work to locate the missing person and as of 21:00hrs the recovery of the missing person was made and the scene was turned over to CMPD.

While clearing from the earlier missing person incident and headed back to the boat ramp, HFD Fireboat responded to two people on personal watercraft that had become disoriented on the lake. Using directions from dispatch we located the lost watercraft and escorted them back to the Neck Road boat ramp. They were lost, and headed towards Gaston County when HFD Fireboat found them. It was very difficult to see them in the dark. As always, practice safety when travelling the waterways in the evening and night hours.

Our crews have been training for these exact types of incidents on the two lakes we cover. We are ready for anything and we are coming if you need us.
