Search for Missing Indiana Canoeist Suspended

GENEVA, Ind. (AP) _ Authorities have suspended their search for a man who was reported in a central Indiana river.
 
Indiana conservation officers said Monday that state and local teams searching along the Flatrock River about 25 miles southeast of Indianapolis exhausted their efforts to find a man who was reported in the stream Sunday. They say sonar operators had obtained a clear view of the river bottom and crews have searched the shore and wooded area along the river.


Officers that shortly after witnesses reported seeing a man hanging onto the side of an overturned canoe Sunday afternoon, someone matching the description of that man was sighted in a wooded area. They say that man told others he had been in the river looking for his dog. He hasn't been identified.
