Friday, May 24, 2013
The search resumes today for a missing Tompkins County man who may have drown on Cayuga Lake Wednesday.
A team of searchers including students from Cornell University suspended their search Thursday evening for 22 year old Christopher Dennis of Cayuga Heights. Dennis an Agricultural and Life Sciences major at Cornell is scheduled to graduate Sunday; he was last seen canoeing in Cayuga Lake Wednesday morning.
Dennis was camping with friends in the Seneca County Town of Covert and went canoeing alone Wednesday morning, by lunch time he had not returned. A search of the lake found his overturned boat.
This time of year the water in the lake is around 40 degrees, rescuers say hypothermia can set in very quickly.
The search will resumed this morning.
