The Search Continues For Missing Canoers

Posted Monday, May 5th 2014 @ 5pm  by 700WLW News

Two men from Troy, Ohio are still missing after a canoe trip on the Ohio River.

19-year old Cameron Buerger and 20-year old Marty Stanoford were staying in a cabin west of Ripley. The pair took a canoe from Buerger's house but left the life jackets behind.  They put in from Lavanna around 5 pm Saturday and were last seen heading upstream towards Lee Creek, in Dover Ky.

There have been a few clues to help investigators. A green canoe was seen Sunday night floating underneath the Brent Spence Bridge and a cooler belonging to the family was found at Meldahl Dam.

Rob Buerger told 700WLW News that his son took the canoe without permission.
