Virginia Beach emergency crews search for man after canoe overturns

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Crews are searching for a missing boater that was last seen Sunday evening.

Virginia Beach EMS, an EMS Marine Team, Virginia Beach Fire Department & Fire Boat and Virginia Beach Police were originally called to search for the man.

The search began around 3:30 p.m., in the 2300 block of Locksley Arch and was suspended around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night. Monday morning crews returned to look for the man.

Around 11 a.m., Monday divers said they had a 'target' and said they may have to dive about 45 feet down.

The water is very murky and dark which is why crews have had a hard time finding the man.

A woman on the canoe was rescued by a neighbor but the man never resurfaced, officials said.
