Man Missing In The Choptank River Still Not Found

Posted: Updated:

PRESTON, Md. - Maryland Natural Resource Police say they're still searching for the 32-year-old boater who went missing in the Choptank river late Saturday afternoon.

According to a witness, the man jumped into the river from a boat around 4:30pm Saturday for a swim.  About 30 feet from the boat, he began to struggle, went under water, and never resurfaced.

The Natural Resource Police say they will continue the search until he is found, but the search is now a "recovery" effort, rather than a "rescue" effort.
