One man is missing and presumed dead after a boating accident in Mingo County, West Virginia.

It happened Tuesday evening in the Tug River near Nolan.

Rescue teams searched the area into the night before calling off the search shortly before 11 o'clock.

A firefighter said there were three people on the boat.

Two people fell into the water when the boat capsized.

One man is still missing.

No word yet on who the man is or his age.

Crews were scheduled to resume their search Wednesday morning.

The water level in the Tug Fork is higher than usual because of the rain the region has received in recent days.
