GRAHAM (CBSDFW.COM) – The search for the body of a missing Coppell High School student continued Monday at Possum Kingdom Lake.
17-year-old Jacob Logan disappeared Sunday after jumping in to the lake. Logan surfaced briefly after diving in, then went under again.
The search, being conducted in the Bluff Creek section of the lake, has been described as an area with low visibility and rough terrain. The water is said to be between 25-80 feet in the area. The area is surrounded by cliffs and has hidden brush under the water surface.
The Brazos River Authority is heading up the search. Divers with the BRA have been joined by divers from the city of Graham in the search. They have also brought in an expert in sonar technology from Hood County to help.
Counselors have been brought in at Coppell High School, where Logan is a senior and his sister is a sophomore. Counselors were also at Coppell Middle School East, where Logan was a student and where many teachers know the entire family.
Logan, a star athlete for the Coppell Cowboys, caught a touchdown pass Friday night. The team’s website had a statement saying, “The thoughts of the entire Coppell Cowboy Nation are with the Logan family. Please pray for the Logan family and their son Jacob.”
Jacob’s mother asked members of the media to respect the family at this time, but did tell CBS 11 “Thank you for loving Jacob, and thank you for keeping our family in your prayers.”
