The search for two missing boaters near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers will resume later this morning after efforts were suspended due to poor conditions on the water Saturday evening. Authorities say that three people were in a fishing boat near the Mel Price Loc & Dam when it capsized. A 10-year old boy was among those on board when the boat over turned; he was pulled from the water by barge workers according to information released by the Hartford Fire Department. His condition is unknown at this time.
Crews from 11 different departments responded to the scene just after 1:30 p.m. Saturday. A press conference has been scheduled for noon and we will have more details as they become available on Z-1570 and at AltonDailyNews.com
