Richland County Emergency Management says 30 crews are on the scene Tuesday, April 7th and that the search resumed at 6:30 a.m. The Department of Natural Resources was searching by boat and plane, while the Baraboo Police Department brought in a drone to search from the air. The Sauk County dive team was also dispatched.

Emergency crews were first dispatched to the boat launch around 6:30 p.m. Monday, but had to stop searching around 8:30 p.m. due to visibility and the weather.

Officials have asked the public not to help in the search because they already have enough resources on the water.
