Search resumes for missing boater

Posted:
JOHNSTON (KWWL) -

Authorities will resume their search for the body of an 18-year-old who likely drowned after his boat capsized on the Des Moines River in Polk County.  Friends say Robert Martin knew the river in the area near the Sycamore Park access in Johnston. Authorities say Martin apparently was not wearing a life jacket when the accident occurred around 2 p.m. Saturday.  Teams searched two miles of the river on Saturday, but the fast-flowing water kept divers near their boats. A search along the banks of the river also proved fruitless.
