Incident on Minnesota River - Belle Plaine

On September 2, 2019, at approximately 10:50 a.m., Scott County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to an unoccupied boat located on the Minnesota River near Belle Plaine. 


Witnesses advised they located a running, unoccupied boat near the shoreline and were unable to locate anyone in the immediate vicinity.  A search began immediately with responders from multiple agencies, both on the water and shoreline. 


At this time, no occupants of the boat have been located.  The search will continue into the evening until lighting conditions make it unsafe for responders to be on the river.  Search operations will resume tomorrow if needed. 


The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, Sibley County Sheriff’s Office, Belle Plaine Police Department, Minnesota DNR, Minnesota State Patrol, Belle Plaine Fire Department, Jordan Fire Department, Henderson Fire Department, Carver Fire Department, Shakopee Mdewakanton Public Safety, Carver County Dive Team, and Ridgeview Ambulance.
