BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - Divers and sonar are being used in the continued search for a Maine boater missing since Friday.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2pVtGzn ) that a recovery effort will continue Wednesday as sonar is used to search the depths of the Androscoggin River near Brunswick for any evidence of 27-year-old Stephen Wines of Bailey Island.

Wines was on a boat Friday with his brother when they both went in the water. Officials say the water was cold and the odds of surviving long were low.

Wines’ brother, unable to pull him to safety, made it to shore and was treated for hypothermia. Wines has not been seen since.
