SANDUSKY — Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth said several agencies will continue the search today for a father and daughter from Sandusky who are presumed drowned.
Jonathan Francis, 30, and his daughter, Viola Francis, 12, launched their kayaks from Crystal Rock, near the southern shore of the Sandusky Bay on Saturday for a two-hour trip to the Thomas Edison Bridge and back, and never returned.
“Unfortunately, so much time has passed,” Sheriff Sigsworth said, adding that the agencies are now working to recover the bodies to give family and friends closure.
