YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Rain is likely to slow the search for a 6-year-old southeastern South Dakota boy believed drowned in the Missouri River on Easter.

Yankton Police Chief Brian Paulsen says authorities searching for Lincoln Hilt, of Hurley, plan to focus on gearing up for the weekend, when the weather should be more favorable.

Hilt went missing Sunday night while fishing with family from the docks at a Yankton city park. He had received a fishing pole in his Easter basket.

South Dakota and Nebraska officials are using boats and airplanes in their search.
