An 81-year-old Chapel Hill man is missing after falling off the rear of a boat on Lake Jordan Wednesday morning.

No alcohol or drugs were involved, officials said.

He was not wearing a life jacket and fell into water between 11 and 14 feet deep.

Rescuers on Wednesday afternoon were using sonar to locate him.
