I just returned home ~2:30am this morning. This accident occurred just above the meat of Damnation, 11:45am Sat. As of 5pm Sunday night, after a thorough search including a 2nd run down the river, local search and rescue, and a helicoptor, all that we had been able to recover was a boat, 1 float bag, and unfortunatey an empty lifejacket at about 2pm Sunday.
In deference to this paddler's family, I am not prepared to comment further on this incident at this time.
FYI, this accident is NOT wood-related. The run is totally clean right now and was running very high.
