Recovery resumes for Missing Boater

on Friday, 28 June 2013.

The search for a Rome man missing from Lake Delta has turned from rescue to recovery mode according to the Oneida Country Sheriff’s deputies. Lt. James McCarthy told reporters yesterday that the grim truth is that 62-year-old Arthur Carney will most likely not be found alive. A helicopter searched the entire surface of the lake yesterday with negative results.

Mr. Carney was last seen by his family at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when he went out on Lake Delta on his 20-foot pontoon boat. Authorities believe he was spotted a few times on the lake. The last possible sighting was at about 4:30 p.m. in the middle of several storms and downpours Tuesday afternoon.  Authorities said Carney’s boat washed ashore shortly before 8 p.m., prompting the search.

Divers are on standby to resume the search today. The department will be using four sonar devices to search the bottom of the lake, one of which was loaned by the Oswego Sheriff’s Office, and two of which came from private owners.

Residents living along the shore of Lake Delta have also been asked to be on the lookout for any evidence that may wash ashore.

Spontaneous Combustion Causes Fire
