They told the officer they’d been swimming in the south lake and at some point, the woman got out to put her dog in her car and get her clothes. She told officers she heard splashing in the water and assumed her sister was getting out. When she came back, she couldn’t find her sister and told the officer they had been looking for two hours.

More officers and a dive team responded.
