Search underway for missing boater in Cheatham Co.

Posted: Updated:
CHEATHAM COUNTY, TN (WSMV) -

Authorities will continue their search Wednesday for a fisherman missing on Johnson's Creek.

Crews from Cheatham and Dickson counties, along with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, were back out around Cheatham Dam on Tuesday, looking for 55-year-old Kenneth Dean Elliot.

Elliot was last seen Monday, and the boater's wife called authorities because she was worried he hadn't come home.

They called off the search due to darkness Tuesday evening and are expected to begin again about 9 a.m.

Rescuers have since found the man's truck and boat, but say there's no sign of Elliot so far.
