ARGYLE - Crews on Sunday searched a second day for a rural Browntown man who was missing after a boating accident on the Pecatonica River that left one man dead and another man hospitalized. The Lafayette County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call just after noon Saturday, reporting a boating accident on the Pecatonica River just below the dam in Argyle. The three men were fishing near the dam when their boat was pulled into the spillway "due to the extreme current generated by the high river level," Lafayette County Sheriff Reg Gill said in a news release.
