Search for Missing Boater on Mississippi River

Searchers are trying to find a missing boater on the Mississippi River.

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office is among several agencies involved in the search.

The Cassville Fire Department responded to a call of a boat spinning in circles in the main channel north of the Cassville Ferry Landing. Authorities later received a call that a 56-year old man from Burlington, Wisconsin was believed to be boating by himself and had gone missing. Investigators believe the man likely fell out of the boat and was not wearing a personal floatation device.

Searchers were conducted over the weekend and have continued this week, with the U.S. Coast Guard involved as well.
