ROXBORO, N.C. — Person County authorities on Wednesday identified a boater missing since Monday.
Chad Lee Napier, 32, was canoeing on Mayo Lake with another man when the canoe capsized, Sheriff Dewey Jones said. The other man made it back to shore and called for help, but Napier, who was said to be an expert swimmer, hasn't been seen since then.
Crews continued to use sonar to search the lake Wednesday, but Jones said high winds made the process more difficult.
