FNN Article (c) 2017.

On Sunday afternoon, May 7, 2017, around 5:15PM, Larry Piefer from Manheim, PA, was involved in a boating accident with three other individuals along the Pine Creek gorge. His compainions made it out of the water, however, Piefer did not surface.

FNN was told Piefer was in his 60's and was enjoying his day with others when the accident happened in the Tiadaghton areas on the westside bank area. He was discribed as being 6'1" wearing waders, glasses and a camouflaged hat.

At this time information is limited, but FNN received word that Morris fire crews were dispatched around 5:30PM to respond to a water rescue. Crews were said to have reported to the DCNR Boat Ramp. Crews were said to have been seen in Blackwell area of the waterway.

Wellsboro fire crews were next to be dispatched. The responded to the Ansonia area, and it was said they also set up at Darling Run shortly after 6:00PM.

The search for Piefer was called off around 8:50PM as it was to dark for emergency crews to see anything.

Search crews in boats and along the gorge resumed the search early Monday morning. Around 11:00AM the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) released information that confirmed information FNN had.

At this time fire crews, state police, DCNR personnel and other agencies are continuing their search for Piefer. Many are hoping Piefer was able to exit the strong waters somewhere along the river's bank, while others fear the worse, as the currents in that area are very strong with the recent rainfall.

Prayers are appreciated for search crews, as well as, for Piefer, his family and friends.
