Two more men missing in fast-flowing California rivers
Two men are still missing after disappearing over the weekend in California rivers, the latest to be swept away amid warnings about high, fast-flowing water in the Sierra foothills and the Central Valley. • Billy Moore, 38, was last seen around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the Tule River in the area of Springville, the Tulare County sheriff’s office said. He had been riding down the river on a flotation device. A segment of the Tule is closed to recreation because of high water flows, but the restriction ends about 5 miles upstream of Springville, which is at the west edge of the Sierra Nevada foothills. • An unidentified man disappeared after jumping or falling into the North Fork of the American River near Yankee Jim’s Bridge around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, the Placer County sheriff’s office said.
