CADDO VALLEY — The search was ongoing Sunday afternoon for a Nash man who went missing on the Caddo River on Saturday evening.

According to Clark County Sheriff Jason Watson, the 19-year-old “went under water, came up and never was seen again” while visiting the popular waterway. A 911 call made at about 5:40 p.m. summoned law enforcement to the river, near the Highway 7 bridge.

“We’re working a three-mile stretch right now,” Watson said Sunday afternoon. “This will continue until we locate the individual.”

Law enforcement from Caddo Valley, Clark County, Arkadelphia and Arkansas Game & Fish responded, along with all area Search and Rescue members. Caddo Valley Police Chief Aaron Collier and Watson have remained in contact with the family.

“Chief Collier and I appreciate the other agencies involved in this search,” Watson said.
