Duck Hunter Missing After Boat Capsizes

POSTED: 7:39 pm EST December 23, 2005

LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Rescue crews have resumed a search for a teenage boy missing after a small boat he and three others were in capsized on frigid High Rock Lake.

Davidson County Sheriff David Grice says the aluminum boat turned over about 300 feet from shore around 6 p-m.

Three teens, who were duck hunting, were brought ashore by residents in the area. One was taken to a hospital and treated for hypothermia.

A 14-year-old dressed for cold weather didn't make it to shore.

Searchers were called off the lake last night. The water temperature at 11 p-m was about 40 degrees.
