LAKE STEVENS, Wash. (AP) - Police in Washington state say a woman is missing after the boat she was driving sank in Lake Stevens.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office says the boat's nine passengers had reached the shore by the time emergency personnel arrived Saturday night but the driver was not among them. The identities of the passengers and the driver have not been released.

Authorities suspended the search for the women until Sunday morning. The incident is being investigated by the sheriff's office.

Witnesses say the boat was a 20-foot ski boat.
