The search for the two missing fishermen has been suspended as of 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

The two men were reported missing Tuesday afternoon.

At least 8 rescue boats and around 30 volunteers and law enforcement were involved in the search and a "ping" was received from one of the missing boater's cell phone around 11:15 p.m.

Pike County Deputy Sheriff Chad Perkins tells KHQA that the search will resume in the morning with a dive team.

Perkins did say a boat was discovered under water, but it has not been confirmed whether or not this boat was that of the two missing men.

We'll continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
