WESCOTT - Authorities say a man has gone missing in Shawano Lake in northeastern Wisconsin after he jumped in the water to rescue his 10-year-old son, who was later found safe.
WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1H4Y6jt ) reports the search for the man who went missing Wednesday is being considered a recovery mission. The search was suspended Wednesday night, and officials said it was expected to resume Thursday morning.
Shawano County Sheriff Adam Bieber says the boy was tubing on the lake without a lifejacket and lost his grip while trying to get back on a pontoon boat. Bieber says the boy's father jumped in the water, and the boat carrying the boy's grandfather and 9-year-old brother drifted away.
The 10-year-old boy was found by sheriff's deputies near a buoy.
