GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Cadaver-sniffing dogs have been brought in from Billings to assist in the search for a 17-year-old boy who went missing in the Missouri River south of Great Falls.
The teen disappeared Tuesday evening at the Big Bend fishing access point. Authorities have dragged the river and searched by air and boat with no success.
His name has not been released. Bill Gange, the boy's cousin, tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://gftrib.com/1cVr2fH ) the family is just hoping to find his remains so they can bring him home.
The dogs were brought in Wednesday.
A Great Falls man died Tuesday after being rescued from the river near Ulm. Ernest Gene Lamere was trying to help two girls in distress in the water on Monday.
He died in a Great Falls hospital.
