SNOHOMISH, Wash. — The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office dive team have ended its active search of Blackmans Lake for a missing 38-year-old fisherman last seen a week ago.

After seven days of searching, they were unable to locate the victim, who was last seen Dec. 6.

The Snohomish Police Department, as well as search and rescue personnel and volunteers, will scan the lake periodically for signs of the victim or evidence, the sheriff’s office said.

Residents who live around the lake have been made aware of the man’s disappearance and the victim’s family, who has worked closely with searchers these past few days, has been notified of the change in operations, the sheriff’s office said.
