The Ocala Star-Banner reports people at the Silver Glen Springs Recreation area in Salt Springs saw a man enter the water on Friday. But when the park closed, his car and personnel belongings were still at the park.

Sheriff’s office divers, along with other professional divers, searched the caves but didn’t find McKeeman.
