October 29, 2017-Emergency crews are searching for a missing boater in Valparaiso’s Long Lake after a canoe capsized early this morning. According to a release from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, “early this morning two men were canoing approximately 150 yards offshore when the boat capsized, resulting in both men entering the water. One of the men was able to make it to shore and summon help from a nearby resident. He reported that he last saw his friend in the water and did not see him make it to shore.” At this time DNR officials believe the man is still in the water according to the release. The identity of the man was not released.
