TALLADEGA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Rescue crews continue to search the Coosa River for missing boater, Steve Tripp.

Tuesday, Tripp was believed to be testing a boat with a friend along the Coosa River when something went wrong. When emergency crews arrived, they found pieces of the boat floating in the river.

The other person in the boat was air lifted to UAB hospital.

Multiple search crews continue to search for the father of four. Childersburg Rescue Squad wrapped up their search Thursday just before 5:30 p.m.

We're told the search will continue through the weekend and the search route could change depending on possible severe weather.
