MADISON, Wis. -

A search for two missing canoeists has resumed on the Chippewa River in Eau Claire.

Crews were back on the river Wednesday looking for two men whose canoe capsized Tuesday afternoon.

An Eau Claire police spokesman said searchers have not been able to find the two men, believed to be about 20 years old, or their canoe.

Police have received no missing person reports and have not been able to identify the missing canoeists.

A kayaker spotted the two hanging on to their canoe and tried to throw them a rope. The kayaker ended up flipping his boat and swam to shore.
