Officials say they plan to resume the search for DelRay Saeman of Great Falls at Placid Lake on Thursday.
Saeman, 69, took his boat out on the water to do mechanical work on Friday afternoon.
The boat was later found drifting toward shore without Saeman.
Seeley-Swan Search & Rescue will resume looking for Saeman at Placid Lake on Thursday beginning at 6 p.m.
Paige Pavalone of the Missoula County Sheriff's Office says crews will be loading equipment into the water at 5:30 p.m. at the boat launch, and will then conduct another grid-pattern search.
Crews had originally planned to go back into the water on Friday, but the search effort has now been moved up to Thursday.
