BROADALBIN -- State and County Law Enforcement members were out on the Great Sacandaga Lake on Monday looking for two men who went fishing on Saturday.
The Fulton County Sheriff's Office said that 51-year-old Mark Richards and 24-year-old Brent Richards parked their vehicle near Macvean Road and launched their small boat from the Broadalbin Boat Launch. They did not come home, and were reported missing on Sunday night.
The Sheriff's Office said that the vehicle was located and items that would have been in the boat were found floating near the shore. A shoreline search did not turn up anything.
