Larry Smith, update on search from missing canoeist

Next Earlier Story: Update on possible drowning in Green River

By Larry Smith, FM 99.9 the Big Dawg and FM 92.7 the WAVE

The search for a canoeist, reported to be a possible drowning victim with resume Thursday morning in Green County, KY, at 8amCT.

Some details have been revised from earlier reports. There were two canoeist in two canoes. One is safe. The other is still missing, and is now reported to be from the Sulphur Well area of Metcalfe County rather than from Hart County, as previously reported. Also, numerous search teams are helping the Campbellsville/Taylor County Rescue, but the Breeding Swiftwater team is not one of those, as previously reported.

The Corps of engineers has cut flow over the Green River Dam Spillway to a minimum, to aid the search. The change has dramatically lowered the level of the downstream Green River, which was estimated at as much as six feet above normal levels with currents dangerously fast. - Larry Smith, Operations Manager, Shoreline Communications
