MESA, Ariz. -

The MCSO dive team is looking for a 31-year-old man who jumped from a 300-foot cliff into Saguaro Lake and never surfaced.

Sunday about 3 p.m., Justin Otto Lee Anderson jumped from a cliff just west of Saguaro Lake's Sandy Beach.

Multiple witnesses saw Anderson hit the water on his back and never come up.

DPS Phoenix Ranger responded, along with the MCSO helicopter, but he was never found. Deputies later conducted an underwater search in the area where Anderson was last seen. The search lasted until about 9 p.m., where it was paused for safety issues.

Monday, the search continues with the use of a drop camera.
