Drone aids in the search for missing 73-year-old man in Ohio
On Tuesday evening around 6:30 p.m., a boat with three passengers on board overturned on the Great Miami River in Ohio. Lieutenant Todd Tennant of the Miami County Sheriff’s Office said that Two passengers were fine and got to shore pretty quickly. They did not need any medical treatment.
Tennant said that boats are out on the water searching for the missing, elderly men, but because of debris in the water such as tree trunks, limbs, etc., it is quite dangerous for the boats to be out with low visibility.
Tennant said that they will search as long as they need to.
