A man who went missing after his raft capsized on the Colorado River Tuesday has been found safe.

According to the Mesa County Sheriff, 23-year-old Conrad Phillips was floating down the river with a friend when their raft got snagged in some river debris and flipped.

The two men were wearing life vests and were able to get to the shore safely and walked home.

The men were first feared to be missing after witnesses called to report an empty raft floating down the river.
