They say they wont give up until the body of Wayne Crosby is found. The East Millinocket resident was fishing with his brother and a friend Wednesday evening when some foul weather moved in.
They tried to get the motor on their canoe running, but they ended up getting sucked into the water falling from Welden Dam causing their boat to capsize. Two of them survived, but Crosby was swept away by the Penobscot river.
In addition to the civilian search crews, Wardens continue to search the river on the ground and in the air. They say they’ve checked the places where Crosby’s body was likely to be located, but they haven’t had any luck.
