Police with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, along with a state police dive team, are continuing the search today following a report Tuesday of a man struggling along Lake Lillinonah near Lovers Leap in New Milford.
EnConn police received the report of a 33-year-old New Milford resident who didn’t return home Tuesday. They searched all day, to no avail.
The man’s wife told authorities he’d fallen from his mountain bike Monday and that he and the bike ended up in the water.
She says he’d gone back to the lake on Tuesday to see if he could retrieve the bike but did not return home.
