NEW TOWN, N.D. — Authorities have identified a Parshall man who is presumed drowned after he went missing while operating a personal watercraft on the Missouri River near New Town.

The search for 42-year-old Chad Kanine has been ongoing since authorities were notified June 11 that he had gone missing in rough waters.

Mountrail County Sheriff Ken Halvorson tells the Minot Daily News (http://bit.ly/2rLTweR ) that a sonar team hired by the Three Affiliated Tribes completed three days of lake-bottom scanning on Monday with no results. He says the recovery operation now is being conducted mostly from the air and the river bank.
