POLSON, Mont. (AP) - The search for a Nebraska man who is missing in a northwestern Montana river is focused in an area that a dog indicated should be searched.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell said Tuesday that search and rescue crews have been using an underwater camera to search the area, but the Flathead River is running high and fast, hampering the search for 23-year-old Richard Mitchell of Minatare, Nebraska.

Mitchell fell into the fast-moving water just below the SKQ Dam on the Flathead Indian Reservation on May 31. Bell says he and others had hiked down to an overlook area and continued past posted boundaries.
