Search for Twin Cities canoeist to continue with boats, airplane

The Roseville man went missing on a northern Minnesota lake.

Search efforts to find a Twin Cities canoeist on a northern Minnesota lake will continue Monday, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said. 

Philip Poulose, 21, of Roseville, and a friend were canoeing on Sand Lake in the Britt area, north of Virginia, on Aug. 12. Conditions were "very windy" and waves started to flood their canoe, so Poulose told his friend he was going to swim for the shoreline, the sheriff's office said.

His friend swam to a small island and was eventually rescued. However, the search for Poulose continues. Neither person had a lifejacket with them.

The St. Louis County Rescue Squad briefly suspended search operations at 9:30 p.m. Sunday but was set to continuing searching for Poulose with boats and an airplane at 6 a.m. Monday, a news release said.

The rescue squad, in a Facebook post on Friday, said they used seven boats, more than 40 personnel, three canines, and a "vast array of technology and equipment" to search for Poulose on Sand Lake. 

"The brisk winds by day have made canine sorties difficult, and the lake bottom is covered in gargantuan weedbeds that grow seven feet tall in places, complicating efforts for our ROVs and sonar fish. Nevertheless, our teams are highly engaged and optimism is high," the post said.
