One man is safe but authorities are still searching for a missing person this morning after their canoe flipped over on the Sacramento River.

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office received a call just after 2 p.m. yesterday afternoon about an overturned boat on the Sacramento River near Wyndham Riffle.

Robert Watson was able to save himself after the canoe overturned in the turbulent water.

Before officials arrived to the scene, Watson was looking for the other person in the canoe but did not find him.

Watson told officers neither of them was wearing a life jacket.

The search for the missing person will continue today.
