By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

WESTERN, N.Y. (WKTV) - Despite rumors that he had been found, the search for a missing boater on Delta Lake continued on Wednesday.

New York State Police helicopters scoured the area Tuesday before the weather turned sour.

Arthur Carney, 62, known as Kevin to his friends, went missing last Tuesday, June 25 when his pontoon boat washed ashore without him in it.

Posters now line the lake, alerting other boaters and anglers about the situation.

Authorities say they believe Carney is in the water because his personal belongings, including his shoes were left in the boat.
