Man missing in Arkansas River

PUEBLO, Colorado – Authorities in rafts are searching the Arkansas River in Pueblo for a 31-year-old man missing for nearly two days.

Ryan Baker fell into the river while climbing on some rocks at Pueblo Whitewater Park. Two family members with Baker called police after he disappeared in the water. Rescue crews searched the river for nearly three-hours immediately after Baker fell in, with additional crews searching all-day Friday.

The three had been on the river in a wading pool.

Pueblo Fire Department spokesman Wood Percival said crews searched the river Saturday and would continue searching each day.
