Search for missing Tacoma woman in NE Wash.

LOON LAKE, Wash. (AP) - Stevens County deputies are searching for a missing Tacoma woman who hasn't returned home after a Thanksgiving holiday weekend stay at a cabin on Loon Lake in northeast Washington.

KHQ-TV reports that deputies were asked Monday to conduct a welfare check on 51-year-old Susan Yager.

Deputies say witnesses told them the woman was seen in a canoe over the weekend. They later found a canoe floating in the lake.

Marine deputies and dive team members searched the lake Tuesday.

The sheriff's office says the search for Yager will continue.
