The search continues for a man who disappeared after going out on a fishing boat on Placid Lake. The boat was found empty, but the man’s whereabouts are still under investigation.

“DelRay Saeman is a 69-year-old Great Falls man who was camping with his wife at Placid Lake,” said Missoula County Public Information Officer Paige Pavalone. “He went missing last Friday. We had a lot of search and rescue crews up their last weekend, including Flathead Lake Search and Rescue, Seeley-Swan Search and Rescue, and Missoula County Search and Rescue. They searched all day Saturday and Sunday, but nothing turned up in those searches.”

The same search teams are preparing to go back out and investigate again.

“The’re going to reconvene tomorrow night, Thursday [August 29], at about 5:30 or 6 p.m. to conduct another grid search for mister Saeman,” Pavalone said. “Basically, they are using every piece of manpower that they have, and every piece of equipment they have, to search in and around the water.”

Pavalone said that because of the type of boat being used, and the fact that dive teams are involved, the focus of the search will likely will be an investigation of the lake bed.
