Body of missing fisherman found in Snake River

 

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office dive team found the body of a fisherman that fell into the Snake River.

Dive team members spent most of Sunday and Tuesday searching the water before locating the man just after 3 p.m. Tuesday.

It appears the man fell off the end of a dock and into the water sometime around 1 a.m. Sunday. Some other people who were camping in the area called 911 just before 1:30 a.m. to report they heard the sound of somebody struggling and yelling for help in the river, but it was too dark to see where he was.

CBS 2 News reports, the campers started moving along the riverbank to try and find the man. Deputies arrived moments later and helped with the search.

An extensive area search involving ACSO deputies, an air ambulance helicopter, the Boise Fire Department Dive Team, Kuna Fire, and other campers nearby was done that morning but they were unable to find any sign of the fisherman…Until Tuesday when the body was recovered.
