Search for missing boater resumed Wednesday

The search for a missing 62-year-old man whose boat overturned in a Mid-South lake resumed Wednesday morning.   

Divers went back in the water to look for Ronald Miller.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Dept. Search and Recovery Team, Braden Fire Dept. Dive Team and Fayette County fire units and EMA searched for several hours for Miller whose boat had overturned around 5:00 p.m. Tuesday in Terra Alta Lake, located about 10 miles east of Somerville, Tennessee.

A woman who accompanied the missing man safely swam to shore.

Raymond Garcia of the Fayette County Sheriff's Dept. said that high winds and choppy waters made it too difficult for the dive team to continue their search.
