After hours of searching, Coast Guard Officials say one of two missing fishermen is rescued, while the other remains missing.

Lester Hill and Larry Love left from Edgewater Marina in Cleveland Monday morning around 5:30.  When they didn’t return last night, the daughter of one of the men called the Coast Guard.  According to the Coast Guard, the men were on a 22 foot white Starcraft with green trim.  

Several local fire departments and agencies are assisting in the search, with boats in the water.  Multiple aircrafts also scanning Lake Erie from above.  

The Coast Guard says they are going to continue to use additional resources in the search for the fishermen.
