CLARKSDALE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Clarksdale Police continue to search for a man, after he went missing more than two weeks ago.

Lige Robinson, 62, disappeared while on the Sunflower River.

Investigators believe he drowned.

A friend told police Robinson tried to canoe across the river to get a beach ball when the boat flipped. At the time he went missing, the river was surging due to heavy rains. Now that the water is receding, investigators are hoping his body will surface.

Recovery teams continue to comb the banks along the Sunflower River.
