Searchers from Deschutes and Jefferson Counties continue to look for a missing angler who fell while fishing in the Metolius River on Memorial Day.
 
 Captain Marc Heckathorn, with the Jeffersoun County Sheriff’s Office, says  they were able to cover about 2-3 miles of the river yesterday.  And, the ground and air search could span about 9 miles of the river today. 
 
The 62 year old man was fishing in the river in the Camp Sherman area and witnesses saw him slip and fall.  He was not wearing a life jacket.  Authorities are not releasing his name at this point.
