KETTLE FALLS, Wash. (AP) -- With daylight Thursday, the search is resuming in the Kettle River in northeast Washington for 14-year-old Laura Enquist who is missing after a canoe capsized.

The Stevens County sheriff's office says she was with her 11-year-old brother Joseph who was able to reach shore Wednesday about five miles north of Kettle Falls.

Steven's County Sheriff Kendle Allen told KXLY that the boy was wearing a life jacket. The girl had a life jacket in the canoe, but did not have it one.

Searchers found a lifejacket Wednesday night about three miles downstream from the canoe accident.
