Berg (dpa/lby) - The search for a missing swimmer on Lake Starnberg continued on Tuesday with a special boat. This is equipped with sonar and diving robots for searching at greater depths. There are also personal tracking dogs on board, said a spokesman for the police headquarters in Upper Bavaria North.
Witnesses had seen a motorboat run over the 32-year-old from Munich around 300 meters from the shore near Berg on Sunday. He went down immediately afterwards. Despite a large-scale search involving around 100 rescue workers, there has been no trace of him since then. On Monday, the water police had already searched the whole area again, but did not discover the casualty.
The police are now checking whether the boatman behaved correctly. According to their own statements, the investigators have so far seen no evidence of misconduct. According to the lifeguard, the man stopped his boat immediately after the collision and helped search for the swimmer. The competent public prosecutor's office in Munich II secured the motorboat. On Monday, an expert began work on an accident analysis report.
