Alabama Marine Police and several other local and county agencies are searching the Warrior River for a missing boater. There is hope 53-year-old Danny McCleskey made it out of the water.

The search began Saturday night after McClesky fell, hit his head and went into the water while changing a light on a barge.

A quarter mile area is being searched near G's Landing in Walker County's Tutwiler community. Cameras are in the water and one agency is dragging it.

Dive teams were in the water Sunday but unable to find anything due to limited visibility.
