Update: Search is suspended for missing 31 year old


LANGLADE COUNTY (WAOW) - The search was suspended Tuesday morning for a 31 year old man who investigators say went missing late Saturday night on Post Lake. 

Langlade County Sheriff William Greening says the man and his wife were at their seasonal cabin on Post Lake.

According to Greening, the man's wife says he left Saturday between 10pm and 11pm in a kayak and was headed for a resort a short distance away.  The bartender verified the man showed up at the resort and was there approximately an hour.  The man's wife became concerned when she noticed he wasn't home at about 3:30am.  She called neighbors and they started searching for him.  At first light Sunday morning, they took a rowboat out on the lake and found the man's kayak upside down under a dock.  When Langlade County Sheriff's Deputies arrived they saw the overturned kayak but the man was not there. 

The Oneida County Dive Team and Wisconsin DNR are assisting with the search.
