YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - Crews in Yellowstone National Park have scaled down the search for a seasonal worker from China who went missing July 23 while swimming.

Park officials said Tuesday they will continue limited, periodic searches of the Yellowstone River corridor downstream from where 21-year-old Feiyang “Isaac” Xiang disappeared. Those searches will be conducted during daily backcountry patrols.

The seasonal park concessionaire is believed to be in a 6-mile segment of the river near its confluence with Hellroaring Creek.

Xiang, of the Hubei province, disappeared while swimming with friends in the river after the current pulled him away from the shore. The area of the Yellowstone where Xiang is thought to be is known to have deep pools, rapids and rocks.
