PITTSBURGH (AP) -

Rescue crews in western Pennsylvania are searching for a man who fell into the Ohio River while fishing near Pittsburgh over the weekend.

Ohio Township police said 23-year-old Kenneth Robinson had been fishing with three friends from a boat dock on Neville Island when he fell into the water Saturday night.

Swift water rescue crews and search dogs have been taking part along with township police and emergency medical personnel.

Mercyhurst University said Robinson graduated from the Erie school this year and played on the baseball team. He earlier graduated from Allderdice high school, and former basketball coach Buddy Valinsky sent his condolences on Twitter, calling Robinson “truly one of my favorite players” on the baseball team.
