NEVADA COUNTY, Calif. - The Nevada County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man they said was swept away on the Yuba River Saturday.
Authorities said it happened Saturday when the man was trying to rescue his daughter, who was also caught in the current.
State park employees and a Good Samaritan managed to pull the girl to safety but were unable to rescue the father. Search teams spent all weekend looking for the man but were unsuccessful.
The sheriff's department is now warning people to avoid waterways saying a wet winter and sierra snowpack runoff has created swollen lakes, rivers and creeks as well as extremely cold and dangerous conditions.
