Missing Boy Search

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand said a search for the remains of a missing boy who went missing in the Mississippi River in 2007 resumed Saturday.

Brand said several small boats and search dogs were brought in to search the area below Lock and Dam Seven at Dresbach for the boy who was ten years old when he and three other family members drowned after their boat capsized when it got too close to the dam on the downriver side.

The bodies of the other three were recovered shortly after the incident which happened in May of 2007. Previous searches for the remains of the boy were unsuccessful.

Brand said he wanted to conduct another search for the boy's remains to see if the family can get some closure on the incident.....
