A second team of OPP divers will be in Thunder Bay Wednesday to continue the search for a missing boater.

The 57-year-old man has been missing since Saturday evening when he left his camp in the Forbes River Road and Silver Falls area.  His boat turned up Sunday near Kakabeka Falls. 

OPP Const. Diana Cole says their dive team spent a second day on the Dog River section of the Kam River, but they were not able to find anything. 

Ontario Power Generation reduced the waterflow from their dams to help with the search. 

The OPP also got some help from the Ministry of Natural Resources, which lent one of its helicopters this morning. 

A second OPP dive team is being brought in to carry on the search Wednesday.  The man's identity has not yet been released.
