Canoe Search Finds Nothing
A search and rescue boat from the Minnesota side of the river below Dresbach Lock and Dam 7 was launched shortly after a semi driver called the sheriff’s department at about 4:45 p.m.
The driver said that he had seen a capsized canoe in the main channel as he drove across the Interstate 90 bridge.
Rescuers in the dive unit’s boat searched the river above and below the bridge and four to five miles of shoreline. The search lasted from after 5 p.m. until about 7 p.m.
