Search underway for missing man

A man who reportedly fell overboard his boat in Seal Cove Pond – between Heart’s Content and Heart’s Desire – is missing. RCMP received a call reporting the 49-year old missing 11 a.m. yesterday morning and has been joined in their search efforts by the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue team. Witnesses say the man had been fishing and was standing in his boat not long before a splash went up beside it, at about 9:30 a.m. Another boat rushed over, but found no sign of the fisherman. Police divers are expected to arrive on the scene today.
