The search continues for a 28 year-old male subject who failed to surface after diving off a 25-foot-high bluff on theBuffaloRiverFriday afternoon.  After an intense effort Friday evening, search efforts were pared down on Saturday due to flood conditions which brought turbid and debris-laden water through the site.  As conditions ameliorated on Sunday the efforts were again ramped up as theriverdropped approximately three feet from Saturday's levels, and were clear enough to deploy a "fish-eye" underwater camera.  The search area has been extended another 600 feet downstream from the incident site and the Harrison Swift Water Team joined the other assets already working the scene.
