Crews are still searching for a man who went missing in the Snake River Saturday afternoon near Celebration Park.

Multiple agencies responded to the area near Swan Falls Dam, where authorities say a man fell out of his canoe around 3:30 p.m.

Initial reports indicate he was not wearing a life jacket at the time.

Canyon, Owyhee and Ada County deputies searched the water for hours but have not yet been able to locate the man.

The Ada County Sheriff's office says a helicopter search from above was also unsuccessful in locating the missing individual.

Deputies say a woman was also in the canoe when it flipped but she was able to swim to shore. She's being treated by paramedics.
