HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut authorities have identified a 75-year-old Woodbridge man whose boat was found overturned on Lake Housatonic.

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said the search is resuming Tuesday morning for Richard N. Fiske. His overturned boat was found Monday on the Oxford-Seymour town line.

Fiske left the New Haven Rowing Club Monday morning.

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter joined crews from state and local agencies in the search, which was suspended Monday night.
