6-Year-Old Missing In Mississippi River
LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) – The search for a 6-year-old boy is expected to resume Tuesday on the Mississippi River in La Crosse.
The U.S. Coast Guard and the La Crosse dive and rescue team began searching for Junior Thao Monday afternoon when he disappeared while swimming with siblings in the river off Pettibone Park. The La Crosse Tribune says the beach does not have a lifeguard. La Crosse County sheriff’s deputies used a tracking dog to search some nearby woods.
The search was suspended about 8 p.m. Monday.
