Search for missing boater continues in Walker County

WALKER COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) – According to Captain Michael Patrick with the Alabama Marine Police, crews are continuing their search on the Black Warrior River for 54-year-old Danny McCleskey.

McCleskey was working on a barge in Walker County Saturday night when he fell overboard.

An image appeared during a sonar search this afternoon, but it was not McClesky. Patrick says recovery could take some time because it was dark when he fell into the water.

“We don’t have an X marks the spot.”

Sonar search and dragging will continue throughout the day.
