Ohio River Search Resumes
The search resumed this morning for a missing fisherman in the Ohio River along the bank of Kentucky’s Ballard County. County Emergency Management Director Anita Bugg tells WKMS that teams had halted their search at midnight. She says the fisherman’s empty Jon boat was found yesterday going in circles in the river between mile markers 971 and 973. The emergency management director says identity of the boat’s operator is known but is not being released. Searchers include the U.S. Coast Guard and Kentucky and Illinois law enforcement.
