A fisherman may have fallen through the ice at Patapsco State Park Friday afternoon.
Maryland Natural Resources police tweeted out a picture of some broken ice near Daniels Dam saying they recovered a boot and tackle box from the water.

By Saturday morning, the search had become even more difficult because of the heavy rains from the night before.
Search by @MDNRPolice for possible missing ice fisherman below Daniels Dam @PatapscoSP hampered by runoff from last night’s rain. River free flowing where 4-inches of ice had been. Shoreline search downstream next step. Tips, call 410-260-8888. pic.twitter.com/rY4Y2GboB0
