MOAB, Utah (AP) - Authorities are searching for a 21-year-old California man who is reported to have gone missing in a stretch of the Colorado River in eastern Utah.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office had responded Monday night to reports of a man disappearing in the water in the Big Bend area. As of Tuesday, search and rescue crews had found no sign of Richard Daniel Lheureux, of Hayward, California.

Lheureux is estimated to have been 20 feet from the bank when he went under water and did not resurface.

Search and rescue crews have been looking for him with help from a helicopter and a drone.

Authorities say the search will continue until the victim is found or every effort has been exhausted.
