Equipment problems interrupt search for missing Orangevale boater

The search for a missing boater at Camp Far West lake was discontinued Tuesday afternoon due to equipment problems, but is scheduled to resume Wednesday.

Dustin Connor, 38, of Orangevale has been missing since Sunday when the boat he was in overturned. A Yuba County Sheriff’s Office boat crew using sonar equipment had to cut short its search Tuesday due to equipment problems, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office news release. Placer sheriff’s deputies, using their department’s sonar equipment and the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office boat, plan to be back on the lake Wednesday.

Connor was among six people aboard a boat Sunday when it overturned and split in half after being hit by another boat’s wake, authorities said. Three people were taken to a hospital with injuries and two others were not injured.
