A 49-year-old Dickson man remains missing after boating accident on Kentucky Lake. 

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and law enforcement from multiple counties -- including Dickson, Humphreys, Benton and Montgomery -- were called to the scene around 8 p.m. Sunday. 

Officials with emergency management confirmed the 26-foot Rinker cabin boat hit something, likely a tree, and went sideways. 

The TWRA said the vessel took a hard left, ejecting three occupants. 

Two people were unharmed, while one suffered a leg injury. They said an adult male is still missing. None of them were wearing life jackets, officials said. 

Houston County 911 tweeted Monday morning that the Danville Boat Ramp would be closed for the day.
