On Friday December 2nd, the Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center received a 911 call about a watercraft occupied by one male that had capsized at the Centralia Lake. The caller advised that there was a man in the water. Immediately upon receiving the call, multiple agencies were dispatched to the call, including Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, EMS, Wildlife & Parks, and LifeNet.

The search continued until dark, when it was determined that the search would have to continue early Saturday morning. The Nemaha County Sheriff’s Office would like to send out a huge thank you to all of the responders who offered their assistance on this call.
