Small Boat Down In Mississippi; Two Missing

There’s trouble on the Mississippi north of St. Louis.

Winds were running around 30 miles per hour when a pleasure boat capsized in the river near Hartford, Illinois around Saturday.

Three people were in the boat.  Only one, a child, has been rescued.

Searchers say waves were five to ten feet high at the time.

The names of those aboard the boat are not yet known.
