Search to resume for missing canoeists

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -

A search for two missing canoeists is to resume on the Chippewa River in Eau Claire.

A search crew will be back on the river early Wednesday looking for two men whose canoe capsized Tuesday afternoon.

WEAU-TV reports firefighters say they found a life jacket,  but they're not sure if it belongs to the missing men. They have not located their canoe.

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.

Searchers on the water and in the air worked about five hours Tuesday, but could not find the men.
