Search continues for boater on Delaware River

PENN'S LANDING - October 6, 2011

The boater, Iouri Lizourn, was last spotted about 100 yards off shore and about 100 yards north of the Ben Franklin Bridge on Wednesday night.

It was around 10:30 p.m. when Lizourn's son called 911 to say his father fell in the water.

He was wearing dark clothing, making it difficult to spot him on the nighttime water.

A Coast Guard rescue boat, a helicopter and state police troopers are participating in the search.
