DEFIANCE Authorities were using search dogs to find a 29-year-old man missing since Tuesday when he attempted to swim across the Auglaize River, according the Defiance County Sheriff s Office.

Eric Flory, 29, of the county s Noble Township, was reported missing at 5 p.m. Tuesday, after attempting to cross the river with a friend 15 hours earlier, the sheriff s office said.
