2 dead, 2 missing in Lake Erie boating tragedy
Search crews combed the waters of Lake Erie Thursday looking for four boaters who failed to return from a fishing trip Wednesday evening. The bodies of two people who were aboard the boat — Amy Santus, 33, of Perrysburg Township and Paige Widmer, 16, of Pelion, S.C. — had been found in the lake during the day and identified. The other two boaters, both males, had not been found. The search is to resume today.
