The search continues for a 10-year-old boy missing in the Mississippi River near La Crosse.

Joshua Xiong was one of four family members who fell from a fishing boat in rough waters near the lock and dam at Dresbach, Minn.


The bodies of his sister, mother and soon-to-be stepfather were found late last week.

Boats and officers from at least 20 law enforcement agencies joined the search for Joshua on Saturday.

Sunday, officials hoped those taking part in a fishing tournament would run across the youngster but there's no word that it happened.

The mother, See Her, 34, had a memorial service and burial on Friday. Her fiance and eight-year-old daughter will be buried this week.
