Search under way for man who apparently drowned in Lake Sakakawea

MINOT, N.D. — Authorities are searching for a man who apparently drowned in Lake Sakakawea in northwestern North Dakota.

The Minot Daily News reports that the man had been in a boat with family members Tuesday night when he reportedly went overboard.

The incident happened one mile north of the Four Bears Bridge, which is a half mile from the Fort Berthold Reservation line.

A spokeswoman with the Three Affiliated Tribes says state and tribal game and fish personnel and emergency responders were searching for the man.
