Search continues for 7-year-old boy who went missing during family fishing trip
DAYTON, Ohio (Gray News) – Authorities are searching for a 7-year-old boy who went missing on a fishing trip nearly two weeks ago.
Dayton Police & Fire said that Lucas Rosales was fishing with his family near Eastwood MetroPark and was last seen around 6:40 p.m. on April 29.
Authorities said Lucas is 3 feet tall, weighs about 60 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a white shirt with black sleeves, black pants and black Converse shoes.
First responders have provided numerous updates since Lucas went missing, saying multiple agencies are continuing the search.
Decreasing water levels gave officials the opportunity to create a temporary dam on a portion of the Mad River to aid the search.
Searchers are using multiple boats, thermal imaging devices, underwater drones, aerial drones, and SONAR devices to find Lucas. K-9s have also been brought in.
