Search fails to find person overboard in Kenai River

KENAI, Alaska (AP) – A person is missing after a boat overturned on the Kenai River.

Kenai radio station KSRM reports three people were aboard a boat Monday that flipped. Witnesses said the boat drifted down river sideways and struck a rock.

Central Emergency Services deputy chief Dan Grimes says a good Samaritan found two of the males but could not locate the third.

A Central Emergency Services water rescue team launched a search and was joined by Alaska Wildlife Troopers.

Troopers say initial reports indicated two people held onto the overturned boat and a third was seen floating downriver.

Troopers suspended the search at 9:10 p.m. because of darkness and planned to start again Tuesday.

No one on board wore a personal floatation device.
