The search is on for a Greenville businessman out fishing this morning when his boat capsizes in the water.

Authorities tell us the boater was a commercial fisherman and local businessman. We're told his boat went under due to a technical issue with the boat's motor.

Officials report the incident happened before nine this morning.

Witnesses say the fisherman was not wearing a life jacket at the time of the accident.

Authorities and search crews spending much of the day on the water searching for the victim.

Divers are also at the scene.
