The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

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.
