GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities are searching for an Arizona man who reportedly fell into the Colorado River while on a rafting trip in Grand Canyon National Park this weekend, officials said Sunday.

The National Park Service said it received a phone call from a commercial river trip operator Friday afternoon. The rafting company reported that one passenger was missing.

Authorities say Victor Tseng, of Phoenix, reported fell from a ledge into the river and was not wearing his flotation device at the time.

The 68-year-old man was last seen by members of his party below Havasu Rapids.

Park Service authorities say a missing persons investigation is ongoing and a search and rescue operation is being conducted.
