PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) -- A search is underway for two people who went missing during a fishing trip at Lake Pueblo State Park.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports 57-year-old Kimberlie Temple and 61-year-old Frank Montoya set out on a 1978 17-foot Stryker boat from the park's south boat ramp Saturday morning and did not return. A boat trailer and a pickup presumed to belong to Montoya were found in a parking lot near the ramp.

Temple's brother called 911 late Saturday night to report that she did not return home, and crews with Colorado Parks and Wildlife began searching for the pair on land and water.

Gail Rodosevich, Temple's aunt, says Temple and Montoya are from Aguilar and fish often at different spots in the state.
