DNR searches Lake Marion for missing boater


SUMTER, S.C. (AP) - Officials with the Department of Natural Resources are searching for a Timmonsville man missing after going boating on Lake Marion.


DNR Capt Robert McCullough tells The Item of Sumter the man set out about noon Wednesday with his 18-year-old son on a fishing trip. McCullough says the boat encountered trouble and the men went into the water.


The younger man was able to get a life jacket out of the boat and was rescued, but his father disappeared in the water.


Authorities didn't immediately identify the men.
