I looked hard for this man he went wayward about seven lots south of my house I know this area like
the back of my hand.

This seems to occur once every other year or so.

Stay off this river in flood stage.
No amount of search and rescue can help you
Michael Phelps couldn't come up from that
current if he was psychotic ferocious.

We were all half out of our minds.

We;re going to go have a look come sunup

We need eyes come join us.

I can;t help but think heaven holds him he
could be halfway to Evansville by now pray

please prayers

Why would anyone want to canoe in this weather and why did they not wear life jackets??? Sounds like it is another case of thinning the herd..........

I have gone boating without a life jacket but not with flood waters up its jst like driving maybe you will get back home maybe you won't - you cross the street with out any kinda safety device its no different if you cant swim I wouldnt advise going into a river with alot of current not even with a life jacket on - what would happen if you got caught on a branch hanging out into the river and you go under are you going to cut your vest with a knife that you dont have lol people learn to think for yourself and use a bit of common sense

That is a very rude comment to make regarding this accident. While better judgment should have been exercised, a comment like that proves you are a soulless person.

I know this gentleman that they are speaking of through a friend and he was a very nice and actually extremely intelligent. It is a shame that the accident happened.
