REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have called off the search for a man who jumped into a river while running away from police in Northern California.
Redding police Sgt. Aaron Maready tells the Record Searchlight of Redding that 48-year-old Darryl Brice Cunningham was last seen struggling in the Sacramento River Saturday evening. He then went under and didn't resurface.
Maready said an officer had approached Cunningham, who was fighting with a woman. Cunningham ran off before jumping off a bridge into the river.
A helicopter and Sheriff's Office boat was called out to look for him, but the search was called off because of heavy rain.
Authorities say Cunningham was wanted on a felony warrant for a probation violation.
