Two search and rescue teams were looking for a reported missing boat and person on Lake Palestine near Coffee City.

A caller told authorities they saw a large wave hit a boat and throw the driver, whom is believed to be a man. Witnesses said the accident happened on the east side of the bridge near the Smith County-Henderson County line.

The Coffee City Volunteer Fire Department was assisting in the search, but other boaters in the area assisted the man to safety.
