ERIE, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania State Police have gotten search warrants for two phones and a boat after a man reported his wife fell overboard into Lake Erie.
The Erie Times-News reported the developments Tuesday, after the U.S. Coast Guard called off the search for the woman late Monday.
According to search warrant affidavits 51-year-old Karen Leclair, of Albion, was on a boat with her husband when he reported she fell overboard about 1:40 p.m. Sunday.
The search warrants are for phones owned by Leclair and her husband and the boat they were on.
Police also plan to review surveillance video from the Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority.
Police say Leclair’s husband told them she was sitting on a five-gallon bucket on the edge of the boat while he checked fishing nets. He told police he presumed she fell overboard.
