Search continues for members of high school fishing team


Authorities in Tennessee continue to search for three members of a high school fishing team who went missing during a tournament on the Tennessee River’s Pickwick Lake last Saturday. Their 20-foot bass boat was recovered Monday.

The missing anglers are identified as two 15-year old boys and a 43-year old man.

With storms bringing heavy rain to the area in the last 48 hours, the National Weather Service said water levels would remain high. Search operations continued yesterday with more than 100 volunteers increasing the search area to approximately 75 miles of the river. The Tennessee Highway Patrol and local police used helicopters to aid the teams.

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency communications coordinator Amy Snider-Spencer provided an update in a video released yesterday. “We are still dealing with a dangerous situation,” she said, in reference to conditions on the waterway.

With no rain expected in the next few days, water levels should subside, improving visibility and safety for the volunteers who are searching for the missing fishermen.
