Divers Search For Missing Boater In Ohio River

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Divers were searching for a man who
was missing in the Ohio River after a boat capsized and sank near
Jeffersonville, Ind.

The Louisville Metro Police dive team searched for the man
Sunday night and planned to resume the search Monday morning.

Sgt. Mike Minniear said four people were pulled from the river
by other boaters who saw the accident downriver from Duffy's
Landing at Jeffersonville, across the river from Louisville, Ky.

Minniear says the boat took on water and sank after the
occupants crowded into the stern to investigate a malfunctioning
engine.
