TWRA said the couple, in their 70s, were on a pontoon boat near the Rock Harbor development when the woman went overboard around 7 p.m. last night. (Thursday)
Her husband went into the water and made an unsuccessful attempt to rescue her. He swam to a nearby island where he was picked up by a passing boat.
The man was transported to UT Medical Center. His wife is still missing. Claiborne County recently ended their search and TWRA investigators deployed a remote operated vehicle to search for the missing woman around midnight.
