Authorities begin Day No. 3 of search for missing teen at Possum Kingdom Lake

POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE, Texas - Authorities are set to resume their search Tuesday for missing Coppell High School teen Jacob Logan.

The 17-year-old high school senior went missing Sunday at Possum Kingdom Lake while cliff diving with friends. 

A team of agencies spent Monday looking for Logan using boats, sonar, and scuba divers. They suspended their search Monday night after the sun set. They were still considering their efforts a rescue, and not a recovery.

Officials at the search site said that particular area of the lake is very deep and has low visibility, making the search difficult. 

On Monday a search group from Hood County joined in the efforts, and on Tuesday a group from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is expected to join in.

"I have three children myself and it is the worst thing in the world not to be certain as to the whereabouts of one of your children," the Project Manager for Possum Kingdom Lake Mike Iltis said at the search site.

According to the Brazos River Authority, rescuers first received the call about a missing boy at around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, and the divers began searching around 4 p.m. later that day.

Logan plays football on the undefeated Coppell Cowboys football team. He had been recruited by about eight schools, but had not made a decision yet. 

On Monday morning the Coppell Cowboys football Facebook page was posting updates and photos using the hash-tag "#PrayForTheLogans." 

As of Tuesday the page had been updated with photos of students praying at the school.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Coppell Cowboy family," a post by rival Flower Mound Jaguar Football said on the Cowboys Facebook page. The comment had garnered over 1,400 likes. 

According to the Coppell Cowboys football website, Logan is a defensive back and wide receiver.
