Search underway for missing angler on Mille Lacs Lake

A search was being conducted on Mille Lacs Lake on Friday for an angler whose boat washed up on the north side of the lake on Thursday.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl said Crow Wing Search and Rescue’s dive team set out early on Friday to assist Mille Lacs County Search and Rescue, whose dive team was seen leaving the lake around 3 p.m. on Friday. The man’s body had not been found.

Sheriff Scott Turner of Aitkin County said the search was focused on the south end of the lake because they thought that was where the man had been fishing.

He left Cash’s landing on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning, Turner said.
