Search continues for missing boater in Dunn Co.

Posted: Updated:

 DUNN COUNTY (WKOW) -- Search efforts continue Monday for a boater who has been missing.

Sheriff's officials and other agencies spent Sunday searching Tainter Lake for a man they believe has been missing since Thursday, when a call came in about an overturned boat found on the lake.

The person who called in said they had seen a white man about 30 years old fishing from the boat earlier.  Dunn County Sheriff's Office says the person operating the boat may live somewhere near the lake, but there have been no reports of a missing person in that area.

Our affiliate, WQOW, says the boat didn't have a hull number or registration.
