ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- Searchers have been looking for an 18-year-old Roseburg, Ore., man who disappeared while swimming in the Umpqua River.

The Douglas County sheriff's office says the young man and some friends rode bikes from Roseburg on Sunday and decided to swim across the river about 11 miles northwest of Roseburg.

KVAL reports that Drake Wallace was pulled into swift water, went under and never came back up.
