Rescue crews searching for missing 70-year-old boater at Lake Townsend in Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Rescue crews took to Lake Townsend after a 70-year-old man reportedly fell from his boat while fishing Tuesday.

At about 12 p.m., Greensboro fire and police officials responded to a report of a person who fell into the lake.

Many rescue personnel came to the lake to search Tuesday afternoon.

A rescue crew found the boat but have not yet found the man. They also found the missing man's pet, as well as some articles of clothing.

Most rescue crews have left the area as of 7:45 p.m., planning to resume the search tomorrow, but two boats are still out searching via sonar.

A portion of North Church Street between Whistling Swan Drive and Rivington Way was closed during the search.
