ROME, Wis. (WSAW) - A water search will continue Sunday for a 70-year-old man that fell overboard on Lake Petenwell.

Another person in the boat was able to call authorities and a search was conducted until 11 p.m. that night. It resumed Saturday morning at 6 a.m. and was ended at 7:30 p.m. It will continue Sunday, weather permitting.
