The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says a jet skier is missing after crashing into a boat on Saguaro Lake Saturday night.

According to MCSO, the jet skier turned in front of a fishing boat before the two collided. 

The rider then submerged after being thrown from the jet ski and was not seen again by witnesses. 

A friend who was near the collision told authorities that the rider was not wearing a flotation device because they were getting a final ride in before placing the jet ski on its trailer. 

Patrol boats with Sonar and an underwater remote operated vehicle searched the area for several hours Saturday night but did not locate the rider. 

Officials will continue the search for the rider Sunday.
