SNOHOMISH, Wash. – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office dive team have ended the active search of Blackmans Lake for a missing 38 year-old fisherman last seen Saturday.   After seven days of searching, they were unable to locate the victim.  The Snohomish Police Department, as well as search and rescue personnel and volunteers, will scan the lake periodically for signs of the victim or evidence.  Residents who live around the lake have been made aware of the man’s disappearance and the victim’s family, who has worked closely with searchers these past few days, has been notified of the change in operations.
