Friends of a Kelso man who is presumed to have drowned in the North Fork of the Lewis River have set up an account for his family.

Those interested can donate to the family of Thadius Roberts, 32, at US Bank, Red Canoe and iQ Credit Union branches.

Roberts was on the river salmon fishing with friends Saturday when he became separated from the group. He was reported missing about 10 p.m. His kayak was found in the area, but Roberts was not.
