Missing person

Firefighters searching river for third day

Saskatoon firefighters are now on day 3 of their search for a person reported missing in the river.

Battalion Chief Marc Degirolamo said they will once again be searching the area where a witness told them a man ran into the water.

They were able to find tracks at that time, but have been unable to find any sign of the missing man, aged 60. 

"We're not putting divers in the water, but we will be doing a search out of the boat," said Degirolamo, citing cold conditions and fast current as the reasons for the decision.

Firefighters carry on search for missing man

Crews looking for a man who went missing in the river have expanded their search area.

Battalion Chief Craig Young said firefighters who began looking yesterday afternoon for the 60 year-old man have now exhausted the original area where they believe he went into the water.

They have asked police to use their plane to scan the area, and have got a boat looking for the man further downstream.

Strong currents make it hard to determine where the man may have ended up.

Divers were searching the river Saturday afternoon for a missing man.

The man's tracks led to the river's edge and off the end of the ice. There were no tracks coming out of the water.

A boat search was done along the shoreline and water rescue personnel waded into the water to search the immediate area until divers were able to search deeper waters.
