Swimmer missing in Montgomery County reservoir

A swimmer vanished Friday in the Triadelphia Reservoir in upper Montgomery County, authorities said.

They said three people were swimming when one went under.

A search was called off about 8:30 p.m. because of darkness but was to continue Saturday.

The reservoir is used as a water supply and also for recreation. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission said the Triadelphia Recreation Area and the Big Branch Recreation area would be closed Saturday.
