Search Continues For Man Missing On Flathead Lake

Posted: Updated:
POLSON -

Lake County Sheriff's spokeswoman Karen Sargeant hopes advanced tracking equipment from Idaho will help find the man missing on Flathead Lake when the search resumes tomorrow.

Authorities searched until 7:30 p.m. last night for 36-year-old Nathan Bird of Huson, and efforts continued today.

So far, very few traces of Bird were found besides a hat and a pair of shoes.

Bird left the Paradise Cove Campgrounds around 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

Around noon, authorities started searching for him just east of Big Bull Island in the Narrows area of Flathead Lake near Polson.

Sergeant says foul play is not suspected, but foul weather is another story.

"The slightest little wind and that lake turns nasty and right there the narrows. They're narrow, that's why they call it the narrows. Weather plays havoc on all the bays and they can be isolated," said Sargeant.

Sargeant says the search will resume tomorrow around 7 a.m.
