Search For Fisherman Postponed In Boundary Waters

GRAND MARAIS, Minn. (AP) — The search for a missing Wisconsin man in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness  was postponed Wednesday.

Cook County sheriff’s officials say they expect to resume the search for the 23-year-old Janesville man on Thursday when the weather could be better.

Sonar has helped searchers detect a body in the water near where Ty Sitter went missing last Thursday. Authorities say he left his father and brother at their campsite on Swan Lake to go fishing near Grand Marais. When he didn’t return, they found his canoe unoccupied.

    Is the recovery team afraid of getting wet BEFORE they go in the water? Disgusting they know where he is & leaving him there for another day.

    The weather is very volatile up in the Boundary Waters. You don’t want to risk the safety of the recovery team and have more people end up dead. At least they have a good idea where the body may be, so better safe than sorry.

    Very sad…how difficult for the family for this to go on for a week now…I am sure the rescuers are doing all they can without jeopardizing anyone’s safety…just a very sad, sad situation. I have known Ty since his was very little and I feel so deeply for his family and all those involved.
