PASCO — Authorities were searching for a missing man after a boat capsized in a river during strong winds.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says the small fishing boat overturned and three men were thrown into the Palouse River around 6 p.m. Saturday, KEPR-TV reported.
Two of the men returned to shore without injuries while the third remained missing Sunday, authorities said.
The sheriff’s office did not immediately release the name of the missing 21-year-old.
None of the men were wearing life jackets, authorities said.
A rescue diver was initially unable to enter the water because of the storm in the search area upriver from Lyons Ferry State Park in Washtucna, about 60 miles northeast of Pasco, deputies said.
