Police Searching For Missing Man After Falling In Swollen Truckee River

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Rescue crews continue to search for a homeless man in Reno who reportedly fell into the Truckee River off a limb Sunday night and was swept downstream.

City officials said on Monday that the 51-year-old man had been camping in the area with another homeless man.

The second man identified the missing man as William Paul Clark. He told authorities Clark was climbing a tree when the limb broke and he fell into the cold, rushing water after 6 p.m. Sunday.

Reno Fire Department officials resumed a search in the area on Monday while the Sparks Fire Department searched the river east of there and Washoe County officials searched even farther east near Lockwood.
