Remote-Controlled Sub Used to Search for Missing Hungry Horse Man

By Beacon Staff

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK – Authorities are using a remote-controlled sub in the search for a man reported missing after taking an afternoon fishing trip in Glacier National Park.

Park spokesman Wade Muehlhof said Friday that the small sub has a camera that will send a video feed from the bottom of Lake McDonald to Flathead County sheriff’s officials in a boat on the surface.

Michael William Sloan of Hungry Horse was reported missing Tuesday night when he didn’t show up for work. Authorities found Sloan’s truck near Upper McDonald Creek and what they believe to be his fishing pole underwater.

Divers, sonar, rescue dogs and a helicopter have been used in the search, but other than the fishing pole, no trace of the 30-year-old Sloan has been found.
