Portion of Calamus Reservoir Closed for Search of Boater

LINCOLN – A portion of Calamus Reservoir is temporarily closed to public access so the search for a missing boater can continue. Garfield County Sheriff Larry Donner said the reservoir is closed from the dam westward to a line from the Homestead Knolls boat ramp to Buckshot Bay.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and Burwell Fire Department are searching for Wesley Sell, 38, of Arcadia. Sell has been missing since the fishing boat he was riding in sank amid high winds on the afternoon of Oct. 11.

Calamus Reservoir is located 5 miles northwest of Burwell in Garfield and Loup counties.
