DENVER (AP) - A man drowned following a tubing accident on the Arkansas River near Pueblo on Sunday, and a search has been called off for a man missing after falling off his inner tube in rapids on the South Platte River.

Police say the man who drowned was near the Cottonwood picnic area. He was not identified.

Sheridan police called off their search for a man missing after falling off his inner tube in rapids on the South Platte River on Saturday.

Witnesses say the 20-year-old surfaced and went under several times.

The man was one of four tubers. The others got out of the river.

U.S. Geological Survey hydrologic technician Sue Hartley says recent rains have created some of the highest water levels in 20 years.
