The Kern County Sheriff's Office says they are searching the Kern River for a man who was last seen on Saturday after he lost his raft and reportedly slipped under water.

Deputies searched the river this weekend, but are yet to find the man. They say they'll continue the search on Monday morning.

Authorities are also searching near Keyseville after a rafting company reported what appeared to be a body at around 3 p.m. on Saturday.

This comes after 4 people were rescued from the river near Hart Park on Saturday.
