OTIS, Mass. - The search is underway for a Berkshire County man who may have drowned in Otis Reservoir.

Authorities say the man was swimming with his father Sunday afternoon. At one point, he had trouble staying above water.

The father made it back into the boat, but the son disappeared into the water.

About a dozen divers searched the murky waters to no avail.

State police say there doesn't seem to be any foul play.
