Search canceled for missing man in Lake Ellen

TOWN OF LYNDEN (AP) -

Sheboygan County authorities have called off the search for a 28-year-old Plymouth man who's been missing since he fell out of a boat into Lake Ellen in eastern Wisconsin.

   The sheriff's office said in a statement Monday night that James Piechocki remained missing after a second day of searches, and no further searches are planned. It says officials will reevaluate that decision if new information comes to light.

   Piechocki was reported missing at about 1 a.m. Sunday on the lake in the Town of Lyndon.

   The search on Monday included members of the Sheboygan County/City Dive Team and the Milwaukee Fire Department Dive Team. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources brought in side-scan sonars to check the lake.
