WARSAW, Mo. (AP) Four people are unaccounted for after a dock collapsed at a lake in west-central Missouri.

The Kansas City Star ( reports that a thunderstorm was blowing through when the dock gave way Saturday afternoon at the Sterett Creek Resort and Marina on Truman Lake. The marina is near Warsaw, about 90 miles southeast of Kansas City.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol spokesman says authorities are trying to determine if the four were missing in the water or had left the covered dock before the collapse.

A number of boats also were damaged.

The patrol didn't immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press. Staff at the marina also didn't immediately return phone or email messages from the AP.
