Ripon Officials Search for Missing Swimmer in Stanislaus River

The Lodi man who disappeared in the Stanislaus River.

RIPON — Police and fire personnel searched the Stanislaus River Sunday for a missing swimmer.

Ripon police officers searched the river bank as fire department crews looked in the water after the Lodi man was last seen jumping into the river near Parallel Avenue and Reynolds Drive. Police say the 21-year-old man was with a group of people at the time of his disappearance around 6 p.m.

The police department reports search efforts were called off for the night once it became too dark. On Monday, crews returned to search the river and surrounding areas and a drone was used to scan the water from the sky.

A search has been scheduled for Tuesday after Monday’s search was halted and the man was still not found.

The identity of the missing swimmer has not been reported.
