GREAT FALLS - The search continues for John Kumm, the Great Falls man reported missing on Thursday on Lake Elwell in Liberty County.
Liberty County authorities dragged an area approximately the size of a football field south of the marina on Sunday in hopes of finding Kumm's body.
Liberty County Undersheriff Doug Riggin said Toole County Search & Rescue provided sonar equipment for the search, but there was still no sign of Kumm.
The 50-year-old Kumm was reportedly at the lake on his boat on Thursday morning and spoke with his brother by phone just before 7 a.m.
At around 7:10 a.m. a woman at the marina looked out on the lake and saw Kumm's boat, but no one was on board.
Cascade County Search & Rescue aided in the search on Friday.
Authorities believe that Kumm either fell overboard, or that his boat came unhooked from the dock and he may have tried to swim after it.
