A search for two swimmers at Lake Travis has now turned into a recovery mission, according to Austin-Travis County EMS officials.

ATCEMS was called to the water rescue in the 1400 block of Hurst Creek Road around 5:30 p.m., Saturday, for a report of two swimmers missing on the lake.

Almost two hours later, authorities said they searched the area where the swimmers were last seen but were unable to locate them.

The search has since transitioned to recovery mode, as crews work to locate the swimmers’ bodies.

This is a developing story and we’ll bring more updates as they become available.
