Dozens Search for Missing Boater in South Columbus
COLUMBUS (Kellie Hanna) -- The family of a missing man, Buddy Leslie, who was fishing this past weekend, was back out along the shore to search for him.
Over a dozen family and friends gathered behind the Lowes store on South High Street near I-270 where two friends went out in a boat to go fishing during the early morning hours of Saturday September 28, 2013.
The boat capsized in the middle of the quarry about 3:30 a.m. when the two tried to change places in the boat.
One man was able to swim to shore, but for reasons unknown, didn't call 9-1-1 until two hours later.
That friend along with Leslie's fiance were out Wednesday morning among those looking for their loved one.
They say they still have hope he may have made it to shore and is somewhere in the woods.
Columbus police also continue to search off and on for Buddy Leslie.
Leslie does have three children including a two week old baby.
