Crews found his boat Wednesday but rescuers in Fulton County still have yet to locate a missing Bernadotte man. Officials say what began as a search and rescue has turned into a recovery effort. 66 year old Floyd Belless was taking a boat to his home on Monday evening after the home had been surrounded by flood waters from the Spoon River. While he was on his way, the boat capsized. Crews found the boat under the ice just yards from where Belless went into the river. They searched the surrounding area until 2pm Wednesday but still couldn't locate him. Authorities will bring a special cadaver dog and team from St. Louis to assist in finding Belless' body.
