Missing Rafter

The Klickitat Cou7nty Sheriff’s Office has suspended the search for a missing rafter who is presumed to have drowned in the Klickitat River. The Klickitat County Sheriff’s Department, Klickitat County Search & Rescue and the Lyle Fire Department responded to a call Saturday night a little after 8pm reporting a missing rafter on the river north of Lyle. According to Sergeant Erik Anderson of the Sheriff’s Department, it was determined that 23-year-old Christopher Dube of Kirkland, Washington had been rafting with a group of friends when he attempted to navigate Lyle Falls alone on his raft. Soon after he entered the rapids, he overturned and went missing. His friends searched for him, then called authorities. Deputies and Search & Rescue volunteers searched for him Saturday night into Sunday with no success. The search was suspended indefinitely later Sunday.
