QUANTICO, Va. (AP) - Authorities have launched a search for two men after their boat capsized in the Potomac River in northern Virginia.

Coast Guard officials say a tugboat crew saw the boat capsize Sunday about a mile south of Leesylvania State Park but could not locate the men by the time they got to the area where the boat capsized.

Boat crews from Coast Guard Station Washington, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police, and three area counties were searching the 47-degree water. A Coast Guard helicopter crew from Atlantic City, New Jersey, also joined the search.

The debris passes through the Conowingo Dam and ends up in the Chesapeake Bay. Most of the debris consists of large tree trunks and limbs. Now, Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says a lot has been cleared in the upper Bay, but four months later, the cleanup continues.
