MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The search continued Wednesday for three Baudette men who went missing on Lake of the Woods.
Northern Light Region says crews searched land and water for 28-year-old Keith Ryan Ayers, 24-year-old Cody Joseph Ostendorf and 22-year-old Justin Kelly Haugtvedt. The three went missing Friday on the Canadian side of the lake.
Land crews focused on Passage Island, while teams from Crow Wing, Hennepin and Lake of the Woods counties used sonar to scan the lake. The Minnesota DNR also walked along shallow areas of the lake near Flag Island. Nothing was found in all of Wednesday’s searches.
The 16-foot Lund boat the men used was found capsized yet undamaged Saturday afternoon, with three life jackets and a throwable life preserver found underneath.
