Authorities searching for missing fisherman

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - Authorities are continuing to search for a missing fisherman this weekend.

Arkansas Game and Fish officers said the 59-year-old man's boat capsized on Beaverfork Lake in Conway during Friday's storm. Authorities said the last time anyone heard from John Sanders was at about 12:30 Friday afternoon. Later that day, another fisherman found Sander's capsized boat in the lake.

Corporal Ross Spurlock with Game and Fish said authorities tried to resume their search when the sun came up Sunday morning but had to wait because of storms; the weather has definitely been a problem.

While crews are still searching, the lake will be closed to the public.
