Search and rescue efforts are underway to find a missing 16-year-old.

Tulare County Sheriff's Deputies say the teen was in the Tule River around 6:45 p.m. Sunday, when he suddenly went under the water, but never came back up.

The Tulare County Sheriff's Dive Team is at the River, searching the water near the Coffee Campground stairs, between Springville and Camp Nelson.

The Sheriff's Office wants to remind everyone that local waterways are very dangerous right now. They say the water is extremely cold and is moving very fast. They ask that visitors use caution during trips to lakes and rivers.
