An early morning search for a missing boater in Lancaster County had a happy ending.

Rescue crews were called to the Blue Rock Road boat launch in Manor Township around 3 a.m. to look for a boater who went out on the Susquehanna River Wednesday evening but did not come home by 10 p.m.

Blue Rock Rescue Chief Chris Ditzler said they found the man in his boat.

“Everything was OK,” Ditzler said. “He was just out enjoying a night of fishing.”

Ditzler said the man told searchers he simply lost track of the time.
