MINERAL COUNTY— The search continues along the Rio Grande for Zack Jones, 33, of Creede.
All flow out of the reservoirs (Rio Grande Reservoir, Santa Maria, and Continental) has been shut down to assist search efforts. Flows at Wagon Wheel Gap are hovering around 2,000 CFS, which is about 500 higher than typical for this time of year.
Search and Rescue members are on rafts in the water; there are foot searches along the banks, and air support by means of drones and fixed wing aircraft are assisting in the search.
South Fork Fire Rescue is providing additional support.
The Rio Grande River will continue to be closed until further notice.
