46 Year Old Boater Michael Larson of Yankton, SD Missing Since Friday May 15, 2009 … Boat Found in Missouri River (Found Deceased)

46 year old Michael Larson of Yankton, SD has been missing since Friday afternoon May 15, 2009. Larson’s boat was found empty around 3:45 Friday afternoon. The boat was resting on a sand bar in the middle of the Missouri River.


The boat was resting on a sand bar in the middle of the Missouri River near Running Water, South Dakota.

Crews searched all weekend, but haven’t had success in locating Larson.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Bon Homme Sheriff’s Office in Tyndall, South Dakota.

“It’s a little cooler than we’d like it if we’re going to be in the water,” Johnson said. “Of course, we’re going to be along the edges of the water. You’re going to get wet. You’re going to get a little cool.”

Johnson says the conditions aren’t ideal, but they’re not anything teams can’t handle.

“There are different types of missions – some water, some land,” Johnson said.  “We’ve had a variety of different situations we’ve been in.”

Around 7:00 AM Saturday morning, crews were out in 37-degree weather, about ten degrees below average. And wind speeds weren’t kind either, with some winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour in some spots. But crews say they’re prepared for the changing conditions.
