Sacramento fire officials have released the name of the firefighter who may be drowned at a Yuba County lake.
He was identified as William Porter, 58, a firefighter at Oak Park's Station 6. Porter joined the department in 2002 and his current job at the Oak Park station, one of the department's busiest firehouses, is driving the fire engine.
Porter also played a role with an urban search and rescue team as a logistics manager and transportation specialist. Previously, he was deployed to help out in the wake of Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Gustav, both in 2008.
Porter was reported missing when he didn't return from a fishing trip at Camp Far West Reservoir in Yuba County on Wednesday night. Yuba County and Placer County sheriff's personnel performed a land search.
A search on the water was conducted on Thursday. The search resumed today.
