Search for missing Conn. photographer scaled back

Posted: Updated:

NEW MILFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Searchers have scaled back efforts to find a commercial photographer who went missing last week after telling his wife he was heading to Connecticut's Housatonic River to retrieve a lost bicycle.

Dennis Schain of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said an extensive search for 33-year-old Eric Langlois of New Milford began after he went missing Tuesday around the river's Lake Lillinonah.

Schain said Sunday the search was scaled back but police would make periodic sweeps of the lake and the surrounding area, plus follow up on any new information.

Police say Langlois crashed a mountain bike Monday in the river, which was swollen from heavy rains. But he managed to swim to shore. He told his wife he was going back Tuesday to look for the bicycle.
