The search continues for a Crawford County man who presumably drowned after he fell overboard a fishing boat and never resurfaced on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 11, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
Roger S. Goodell, of Ferryville, was fishing with a friend near Lock and Dam No. 9, near Lynxville, around 12:40 p.m. Saturday, when their boat floated into a restricted area near the dam. Goodell attempted to push the boat away from the wall while the friend started the boat motor. Goodell then fell into the water and disappeared.
According to Sheriff Dale McCullick, emergency personnel, including a dive team and Med Link Air, have been searching daily for Goodell’s body or at least evidence that would lead authorities to the recovery of the body. On Tuesday, an individual searched the river with an underwater camera. McCullick said the camera located a couple of areas of interest, but upon the diver’s search, nothing more was found.
