GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The search was paused overnight, but rescue crews plan to return to Lake Townsend on Wednesday morning, the day after a 70-year-old man reportedly fell from his boat while fishing.

Crews were waiting for the sun to come up to resume the search.

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

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

Most rescue crews left the area by 7:45 p.m., but two boats stayed out later searching via sonar.

Officials also searched using a helicopter and search dogs.
