EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) - Divers were to resume the search for a 26-year-old man who fell into the Walnut River at an El Dorado park and never resurfaced.

KAKE-TV (https://bit.ly/1LmQ39p ) reports the man was with his brother Sunday morning when he tried walking across a man-made waterfall and got swept away.

Emergency crews spent the day looking for the man, whose identity hasn’t been released, but had to scale back their efforts Sunday afternoon because the water level was too high to continue.

Divers were to be brought in Monday morning to resume the search.

El Dorado police spokesman Lt. John Stewart says the water is moving rapidly because it is overflow from El Dorado Lake. Stewart says drains have been shut down but the water isn’t subsiding as much as searchers had hoped.
