CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) -- Officials are using boats and helicopters to look for a man missing after his boat capsized on the Wateree River north of Camden.

Authorities say 44-year-old man was in his boat around 11 p.m. Saturday with a woman when the boat hit a log and sank. The woman says she resurfaced, but the man disappeared.

Department of Natural Resource Capt. Robert McCullough says the woman floated downstream and found a fisherman, who then called authorities.

McCullough says rescuers are still hoping to find the man alive even though the Wateree River is moving fast and is near flood stage.

The man's name has not been released.
