What began as a river rescue is now a recovery operation.
A small fishing boat capsized on the Mississippi River Saturday afternoon, dumping two men and a 10 year old boy into the wind torn water.
A towboat crew found the boy and pulled him to safety.
More than two dozen fire and rescue crews spent the day Sunday searching for the boy's step-father and another man, but both are still missing. Hartford Fire Assistant Chief Bill Owens says they searched in the water and along the banks from Hartford, Illinois south to the Chain of Rocks Bridge.
By Sunday afternoon Owens expressed little hope that the men would be found alive.
Owens says the boy was wearing a life jacket when he was pulled from the water. It's not known if the men were wearing theirs, since two life jackets have been found in the area.
Crews will resume searching Monday morning using sonar provided by the Illinois Conservation Department.
Students at the Gateway Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) High School will find some upgrades when they arrive for classes Monday morning. The St. Louis magnet school was the beneficiary of a community service project that capped off the sixth annual Clinton Global Inititative University. Former President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea led more than 700 volunteers in giving the school a makeover inside and out.
President Clinton carried his message to commit to action to St. Louis challenging students to find solutions to issues regarding human rights, public health, the environment, poverty, and education. Speaking at Gateway STEM high school, Clinton urged Americans to focus on science, technology, engineering and math.
"We need to produce, over the next decade, one million people trained in the STEM areas just to maintain our current position, never mind to recover the rate of economic growth and prosperity that the country needs," Clinton said.
Volunteers spent the day Sunday painting, carpeting, weeding and planting gardens.
Gateway Principal Beth Bender says the improvements included the installation of over 80 solar panels as well as a place for students to grow vegitables.
"The Washington University school of architecture and landscape design has designed these beautiful and very functional raised bed gardens so we can do some urban farming here in the city and our students can learn about that," Bender said.
Bender says Clinton's project will have a big impact on her school.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - State police in Mississippi say a murder suspect shot a Jackson police detective and then shot himself at police headquarters.
Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said Friday that Jeremy Powell shot Detective Eric Smith before killing himself, in the first official description of how the men died.
The state agency took over the investigation from the Jackson Police Department.
The men died in a third-floor room Thursday where Smith was interrogating Powell. Powell had been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a 20 year old Jackson man.
Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart says she will perform autopsies on Friday.
