ZAPATA, Texas (AP) — Authorities have been searching for a 5-year-old boy who fell into a South Texas lake when the inflatable raft he was on flipped over.

The Laredo Morning Times ( ) reports that the Zapata County sheriff's office got a call Saturday afternoon that the boy had fallen into Falcon Lake.

Authorities said high winds had caused the raft to drift away from the shore and his family.

Several agencies were helping with the search and rescue operation.

The sheriff's office did not immediately return a call Sunday to The Associated Press for an update on the search.
