The Missoula County Sheriff’s Department has released the name of a 69-year-old man who was last seen on Placid Lake Friday afternoon.

DelRay Saeman, of Great Falls, took his boat onto the lake Friday around 3:30 p.m. to work on it, while he and his wife were camping in the area. His boat was later found unattended and drifting, the sheriff’s office reported.

The search and rescue effort has been ongoing since Saturday. On Sunday, Missoula Search and Rescue and Flathead Search and Rescue joined the Seely-Swan Search and Rescue to assist in locating the man.

The search effort continued throughout Monday’s daylight hours.

Missoula County Sheriff’s Deputy Paige Pavalone said the man is considered a missing person and has no history of wandering off.

It’s not clear if he has health problems.
