Authorities continued to search Sunday for a man feared to have drowned in the Kansas River.
Two boats had been deployed by 9:20 a.m., said Craig Duke, Kansas City, Kan., Fire Department deputy chief.
The 30-year-old man last had been seen swimming at about 7 p.m. in the Kansas River near the southbound Interstate 435 bridge at Woodend Roat.
“He attempted to swim across the river,” said Duke. “His friends lost sight of him.”
Department representatives deployed four boats late Saturday night as the search continued both on the river and the riverbanks. They suspended the search shortly before 10 p.m.
One of the department boats launched Sunday was equipped with sonar equipment, Duke said.
