The Ada County Sheriff's Office is still searching for a Boise man who fell out of a canoe and into the Snake River April 21. According to ACSO, the unidentified man had been canoeing with a woman when, about a mile and a half from Celebration Park, they encountered turbulence that caused their canoe to capsize.

Neither were wearing life jackets, but the woman was able to grab one of the vests as she swam to shore. Witnesses said the man disappeared while attempting to swim to shore as well. The woman was treated for hypothermia, and the Ada County Trauma Intervention Team is providing support.

ACSO rescue is being assisted by deputies from the Canyon and Owyhee county sheriff's offices.
