SHELBY, Mont. (AP) - A Washington state man is missing and presumed drowned in a north-central Montana reservoir.

Toole County Sheriff Donna Whitt says 34-year-old Adam Lee Wills and a woman were floating on a small aluminum boat on Lake Elwell on Saturday evening when the wind picked up, causing waves that capsized the boat.

Whitt says the woman was able to make it to shore after about an hour, but she lost sight of Wills.

Extensive air, land and water searches were conducted Sunday. Searchers located what they believed to be a submerged body in about 85 feet of water using sonar. Deep water divers brought in Monday were unable to locate the body.

Whitt did not release Wills’ hometown.
