Search for missing swimmer in Otis Reservoir continues

OTIS, Mass. -- Rescue crews are searching for a man they say went missing in the Otis Reservoir in Berkshire County on Sunday.
First responders at the scene tell CBS6 reporter Matt Markham they believe the young man drowned but have not yet located his body.
Officials say the man was swimming with his father around 2 p.m. when he went under.
The father was able to swim back to the boat that was located less than a mile from the old J & D Marina.
The search was called off late Sunday because of visibility issues, according to the fire chief.
The identity of the man who is presumed dead has not yet been released.
