Rescuers search Laurel Lake for missing man

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

Personnel from the U.S. Forest Service, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Laurel County Rescue began searching again for the pilot of a boat on Laurel River Lake about 2 p.m. Friday.

The boat owner, Clarence Holmes, 32, of Berea, was found missing about 9 p.m. Thursday after a heavy storm moved across the lake.

Holmes’ unoccupied pontoon boat was found near a small island in the lake near the Marshes Branch area.

He had been helping people tie up their boats before the approaching storm hit.

Late Friday, four Fish and Wildlife boats were in the area along with at least one boat from the Laurel County Rescue Squad, said Albert Hale, of the Laurel County Department of Public Safety.

One of the Fish and Wildlife officers was working near the shore where the body of the boater may float to the top, Hale explained.

Out in the deeper part of the lake, an underwater sonar was being used to search for Holmes.

Holmes was last seen about 3 p.m. on Friday. A search was done, but suspended at nightfall.

His personal belongings were found on his boat.
