Missing Boaters Found Alive And Well

The search for the two missing boaters has come to an end today.

The men went out on the Cumberland River Wednesday morning in Whitley County.

The wife of one of the boaters says she went to pick them up last night and couldn't find them.

Crews spent all night and most of today searching for the boaters.

Just before noon, the men walked up to crews out searching for them.
They said they had ran into some rough waters Wednesday while boating and decided to dock and camp out for the night.

43 year old Philip Bland and 42-year old Darryl Waldroup are both doing well.
