Search For Missing Duck Hunter Halted


The search for the missing duck hunter on Flathead River is on hold until Tuesday, October 29.

Flathead County Sheriff, Chuck Curry, says crews did not search Sunday, October 27 either, since forces have been preoccupied with search-and-rescues associated with the opening of hunting season.

Since last Monday, Flathead county authorities have combed the waters with helicopter surveillance, canines, and sonar equipment.

No leads have been reported so far.

Curry says the search for the missing 65-year-old Kalispell man has most likely become a recovery rather than a rescue mission. He also adds that Tuesday the search may or may not continue, depending on availability of resources. Officials will reevaluate the situation before heading back out onto the water.

The man's name has not been released.
