Yesterday (February 15th) at approximately 5:20 PM, the Cayuga County 911 Center received a report of an individual that appeared to break through the ice on Owasco Lake between Buck Point Road in the Town of Fleming and Swartout Road in the Town of Owasco.
The individual may have been riding a smaller ATV or snowmobile that was lost at the time of the incident. It appears that the individual was able to get out of the water and was last seen by a witness walking West towards Fleming; however, the subject has not been identified.
Members of the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office are seeking help identifying this person. Anyone that may have witnessed this incident, someone walking on the lake, or knows the identity of this individual, is asked to call 911.
