Fort Dix officials are investigating the discovery of a grounded boat, which has sparked concerns of a possible missing boater.

Authorities were called at 5:30 p.m. Saturday with the report of a grounded boat on Meadow Lake. The engine was running when the boat was discovered, but no one was on board.

A search for the boat operator turned up empty. That's when Fort Dix officials called in additional support from the Bordentown Township Marine Unit. Authorities believe only one person was on board the boat.

The family of the boat owner has been contacted as the search continues. The boater's identity has not been released.
