Officials search for man on Centerville Lake


CENTERVILLE, Minn. (AP) -- Anoka County authorities spent Sunday afternoon searching for a man after a canoe capsized on Centerville Lake.

The Star Tribune reports that authorities believe the man has drowned and it's unlikely he'll be found alive.

Two men fell into the lake at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday when their small boat tipped. One man was saved by other boaters. But the other man was missing.

After several hours of searching, officials are calling the search a "recovery effort."
