Search goes on for boater

Published July 29. 2013 05:05PM

The search continues for the body of a boater who officials presume drowned after falling from his boat last Monday on Beltzville Lake.

A call to Beltzville State Park's office this morning confirmed that the body of the man, whose name has not yet been released to the media, has not been found as of press time.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources closed all boat launches at the lake until further notice. Swimming, picnicking and hiking are still available.

Search efforts have been under way since last Monday morning after a fisherman noticed a boat on the water without a driver and heard calls for help.

Dozens of volunteer and state agencies have searched the area of the lake where the boat was located numerous times using sonar, dive teams and cadaver dogs.
