CHASSELL, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in the Upper Peninsula are searching for three people, including a 9-year-old boy, who didn’t return after an afternoon of fishing.

The boy was accompanied by his father and another man in Houghton County. State police say they were headed to Lake Superior in a 16-foot boat Saturday, launching from the East Portage Canal.

Family members called police when they didn’t return for an evening fish fry. Their boat trailer and truck were still at the marina.

The search involves state police, the U.S. and Canadian coast guards and local police agencies.
