(Learfield) The Winona County Sheriff's Office will continue using a drone to search from above for a possible drowning victim Wednesday.

A woman on a bike path at Lake Winona reported she saw someone in trouble in the water. The witness said the man was swimming, but he seemed to be in distress because he was waving his arms in the air.

Sheriff Ron Ganrude says the woman was the only person to report seeing a swimmer in that area and there was no other evidence to suggest a swimmer was in the area. Ganrude went on to say if no sign of the victim is found by this afternoon, the search could be called off.
