Crews Still Searching Crooked Lake for Missing Boater

Crews are still searching for a missing boater in Emmet County’s Crooked Lake. 

The man was last seen struggling in the water Wednesday.

We’re told the man was on a pontoon boat with friends when they all hopped off to float on tubes.

The sheriff says as the tubes started to drift away from the boat, the man started struggling in the water.

His friends tried to save him but couldn’t.

Over the past two days, divers have been looking for the man toward the center of the lake where he was last seen.

The sheriff’s office is not releasing the missing man’s name yet, but they say he is from downstate.

If there are any updates on this search, we will bring them to you on air and online.
