Divers backed by a helicopter continued to search Lake Maggiore, in the northern Lombardy region, for one person left missing after a whirlwind overturned the boat carrying more than 20 tourists and crew late Sunday.

Firefighters said 19 people were saved. Many reportedly managed to swim to shore, or were picked up by other boats.

Firefighter video released Sunday showed pieces of wood floating in the lake as a helicopter flew overhead.
