PATTERSON,LA (WALB) – A search is underway on a Louisiana lake for a Worth County man authorities say fell off a bridge Monday night

The U.S. Coast Guard and St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office spent the day searching the banks and waters of Wax Lake Outlet for 23-year-old Lewis Mills of Sylvester.

Witnesses told police Mills was walking the rail of a bridge when he lost his balance and fell into the water.

Authorities in Louisiana told us tonight they'll be back on the water Wednesday to continue the search.

Mills has a wife and daughter. He was in Louisiana for work.
