Crews search for man who went missing while tubing on lake


WHITE LAKE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are continuing to search for a South Carolina man who went missing while tubing on White Lake.

Media outlets report North Carolina wildlife officials say 36-year-old Kendrick Lavor Dials of Florence, South Carolina, went missing Saturday afternoon on the lake, which is about 40 miles south of Fayetteville.

Officials say Dials was riding in an inner-tube behind a boat when he fell off the tube and disappeared into the water.

Bladen County Director of Emergency Services Bradley Kinlaw says several crews spent the weekend searching for Dials.

Officials are using sonar detection, K-9 units, a drone, and a helicopter in the efforts.
