RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -Authorities looked for a person reported missing in the Truckee River Saturday afternoon, but did not find him.

They called off the search just after 5:30 p.m.

Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue and the Reno Fire Department searched the river from Dorostkar Park at Mayberry Drive downstream.

The person had been floating on an innertube when he went into the river.

Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue said the missing person is a 35-year-old man with blond hair, light blue jean shorts and no shirt.

“While a victim was NOT located, this is a stark reminder that you should always wear a personal flotation device while in the river or any body water,” Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue said.
