Search continues for missing fisherman at Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The search for a missing fisherman is being resumed in Memphis.

According to The Commercial Appeal, 39-year-old Nehemiah Crenshaw's boat was found on McKellar Lake Saturday afternoon. The man who found the boat with no one on board marked the spot and towed the boat to a marina. It was there that authorities found Crenshaw's sport utility vehicle and boat trailer.

A daylong search on Sunday failed to find Crenshaw. Crews called off the search at nightfall, but planned to resume Monday morning.

McKellar Lake is a cutoff of the Mississippi River along Presidents Island.
