One man was retrieved found hanging on to the boat. He was hospitalized with hypothermia. The other remains missing as multiple law enforcement agencies are at the scene. 

"We responded to a report that a boat had sank or capsized," said Any Haude of the Harrison Township Fire Department. "There were two people in the water. A passerby had grabbed one of the people and brought them in.
