Search to resume for missing boater
WAUKESHA, Wis. — Authorities say the search for a missing boater in a Waukesha County lake is now a recovery mission.
First responders went to Upper Nashotah Lake Wednesday afternoon after someone reported distress calls coming from the water near Seminary Ridge in Delafield. Officers found a capsized sailboat with no one in sight.
WTMJ-TV reports search and rescue crews spent about five hours on the lake, but did not find the boater. Authorities say the missing person is a local resident whose name has not been released.
Upper Nashotah Lake is about 130 acres and over 50 feet deep in some spots.
