CONESTOGA, Pa. (WHTM) -

A man is still missing after his boat capsized on the Susquehanna River.

Officials say it happened around 11:45 a.m. on Saturday near Jack's Island, just north of Shenks Ferry in Conestoga Township.

Police searched over the weekend for the man, believed to be in his 50's. They say he was on the boat with his wife when it capsized.

Another boater was able to rescue the woman.

Officer Jesse Blank of the Southern Regional Police Department told abc27 that "it's believed that [the female victim] was in the water anywhere from two to ten minutes."

She was treated at the hospital and is expected to be okay.

It is not clear if the man was wearing a life jacket. Officials have not yet released their identities, but say the couple is from Reading.
