HESPERIA – A difficult day passed for the family of 54-year-old Hesperia resident, Michael Croy, who was the subject of an Aqueduct search on Saturday. After approximately 10 hours of searching for Croy, the search was suspended on Saturday night.
It is unclear how Croy ended up in the water, but his running truck and dog were located nearby, officials said. The search began when just before 10:00 a.m. a 911 call was made reporting that a man was in the aqueduct water and went under not returning to the surface. Hesperia units and the dive team quickly responded to the area of Main and Escondido where the Croy was last seen.
San Bernardino Sheriff’s Spokeswoman, Cindy Bachman told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that although Croy was not yet located, the drive team suspended their search and would resume in the morning.
“They cannot search the murky water at night,” said Bachman. They searched several miles of the aqueduct today and were unable to locate the missing man. Patrol will be visually checking different areas of the aqueduct throughout the night.
