GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Searchers haven’t been able to find any sign of a teen who went under the water while swimming in the Colorado River in Grand Junction.

The Daily Sentinel (https://bit.ly/29ndPC3 ) reports that the 17-year-old boy called for help before disappearing under the water around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday just above Corn Lake. Mesa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Megan Terlecky says he wasn’t wearing a flotation device.

Searchers looked for the boy until dusk, using four boats and checking around river debris and rocks where a person could get stuck, and resumed work Thursday.
