MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WAAY) - Search teams are looking for a Guntersville man after finding his boat on the Tennessee River Tuesday morning.
Sheriff's investigators and Alabama Marine Police located a boat belonging to Jackie Neil Rowell, 57, Tuesday morning near the Guntersville dam, a day after a missing person report was filed.
The manager of a local marina filed the report Monday after being unable to contact Rowell by phone. Authorities said Rowell would stay in close contact with the marina while on trips, but he hadn't been heard from in the last few days. Rowell reportedly left the Marina Nov. 15 and hasn't been seen or heard from since.
Authorities and the Guntersville Rescue Squad are planning an aerial search in addition to searching on the water.
