FALL CITY, Wash. (AP) — The King County sheriff’s office says searchers have been unable to find a man missing in the fast-moving Snoqualmie River since he tried to rescue a dog. A sheriff’s spokesman said Monday’s search was suspended at 5 p.m.

The 29-year-old man and his girlfriend reportedly were playing with two dogs along the river Sunday at Fall City, Wash., when one dog was pulled into a whirlpool. The man went into the water to help the dog but got trapped in the current.

The woman also went into the water but was rescued and treated at a Bellevue hospital.

The Seattle Times reports both dogs are OK.
