Search Continues for Drowning Victim
Contact: Caven Clark, Public Information Officer, 870/365-2790
The search for 21 yr-old David Boyd of Newton County is in its second day. Search crews continued at their task until 9:30 last night with no results. Wednesday’s efforts concentrated on river sweeps using a combination of sonar and mechanical means to locate the body. One of the major difficulties yesterday was the high velocity and turbidity which hampered the efforts of the dive team to approach areas likely to have captured the body.
