FALL CITY, Wash. (AP) -- The King County sheriff's office says divers have called off the search in the Snoqualmie River for the body of a 29-year-old Bothell man who was swept away Sunday when he tried to rescue his dog from a whirlpool.

The sheriff's office says the county's helicopter will fly over the river and a marine unit will float the river near Fall City weekly, looking for the victim.

Lindsay Grennan told KOMO-TV that she and her fiance, Johnny Sharrar, threw a stick in the water for their dog to chase. When the dog got caught in the strong current, they both jumped in to save the animal.

Sharrar was carried away by the water. Grennan was rescued. The dog managed to get out safely.
