Authorities say rescue crews are searching for a 51-year-old Michigan man after a 16-foot fishing boat flipped over on Lake Erie in Monroe Township.

Another boater was rescued from the water and hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries.

The Monroe County sheriff's office says deputies were dispatched around 7:45 a.m. Sunday to check on two people on a fishing boat that was roughly one mile from shore, but were initially unable to find the boat.

It was later found upside down in a fishing net. Multiple agencies are conducting the search including the U.S. Coast Guard.
