Search for missing rafter resumes Monday morning

SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho - Monday morning, search and rescue crews are resuming their search for a missing rafter, one of three men whose raft capsized on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Shoshone County Sheriff's office, the incident happened just before noon on Saturday, at the North Fork of the Coeur d' Alene River Road. Sheriff's deputies report they received a report of a body being discovered in the water.  Deputies determined the body was that of a male, approximately 48 years of age.

Approximately 30 minutes after the call, another deputy of the sheriff's office responded to the Kingston Shell Station on the Coeur d' Alene River Road where a man who had been floating the river reported that his small raft had capsized, and the two other people that were in the craft were missing.

Deputies determined the body discovered matched the description of one of the missing rafters.  The Shoshone County Sheriff's Office, the US Forest Service, Med star, and Shoshone County Dive Rescue Team then continued the search for the other missing person for approximately seven hours but were unable to locate him. The search was called off Sunday night due to poor lighting and fast waters.

The person still missing is described as a male approximately 46 years of age, 5'9", 285 pounds with long black hair, wearing a gray shirt and dark pants or shorts.

Shoshone County Sheriffs planed on resuming the search Sunday morning but it was called off due to the high water level of the river.

Anyone with information regarding the missing person is asked to contact the Shoshone County Sheriff's office immediately at (208)-556-1114.
