OMAK, Wash. (AP) - The Okanogan County, Washington, sheriff’s office says one man is missing after a boat overturned on the Columbia River south of Omak Lake. A woman who had been in the boat made it to shore.

The sheriff’s office says 46-year-old Kenneth Leslie of Sedro Woolley and 44-year-old Colleen Gillogly of Sedro Woolley set out fishing on Wednesday morning with their two dogs, but their boat swamped and overturned.

KHQ-TV reports (http://is.gd/CGB8dM ) that the woman was wearing a life vest and tried to pull the boat along while swimming to shore. The sheriff’s office says Leslie was not wearing a life vest and could not swim. He was hanging onto the boat. The sheriff says the woman reported that the man told her to swim to shore, which she did. The boat sank and Leslie disappeared.

One of the dogs drowned.
