Authorities resume Mississippi River search for missing person


CRAWFORD COUNTY (WKOW) -- The Crawford County Sheriff's Office says they've resumed their search Monday morning for a missing person last seen in the Mississippi River.

Sheriff's officials say they received a 911 call for a missing person a little after 3:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Officials say that a group of people were camping on an island near Gordon's Bay boat landing when one of the group members attempted to swim from the shore to the campsite.

Officials believe that the person swimming to the campsite went underwater.

Numerous law enforcement agencies helped search the area by land, water, and air on Sunday.
