The search continues for a Delta man presumed drowned in the Crawford Reservoir.

Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee says crews are continuing to search for 22–year–old Tyler Korthuis who fell into the water last Wednesday.

He and 22–year–old Stacey Bjerk were in a canoe when it capsized due to rough waters.

Bjerk made it to shore and was not seriously injured.

The Sheriff says crews are using sonar to search areas of the reservoir highlighted by dogs brought in last week to aid in the search.
