Crews Search For Missing Fisherman

Posted: Updated:

Emergency responders and county sheriff's officials from surrounding areas are working together in a search for a missing Autaugaville fisherman, who was reported missing Sunday.

Limestone County officials are using a helicopter and search dogs to assist in the search for 43-year-old, David Taylor.

Investigators say Taylor hasn't been seen since he left for a fishing trip at a gravel pit lake. Divers found Taylor's boots and canoe floating upside down Monday. The fisherman's sister, Denise Taylor, says hope for her brother's safe recovery has already started to fade.

Autauga County Chief Deputy Sheriff, Joe Sedinger, says the water is about 47 degrees and divers have low underwater visibility.

The County Sheriff's Department says they do not suspect foul play in the disappearance.
