The search for a missing boater along the Coosa River has resumed on Wednesday morning.

Childersburg Fire Rescue received a call about a boating accident in the River Run subdivision just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday. A captain with the unit says when crews arrived at the river they found at least five separate pieces of the boat floating in the river, including a fuel cell.

They believe there were two people in the boat. A family member say the missing boater is a man named Steve Tripp. A second person on the boat was airlifted to UAB. That person was reportedly awake and suffering from injuries. Their condition is unknown at this time.
