Search for missing Yellowstone worker
A search was underway in Yellowstone National Park for a seasonal worker from China who went missing Thursday while swimming.
The park says that Feiyang “Isaac” Xiang, 21, of Hubei province was backpacking with four friends and disappeared while swimming in the Yellowstone River near its confluence with Hellroaring Creek in the park’s northern section.
Xiang was swimming with two companions around 11:45 a.m. when he was pulled away from the shore by the current.
Initial search efforts Thursday afternoon did not turn up any sign of the seasonal concessionaire, who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds.
