PORT ROYAL, Va. (AP) - A search is entering its third day for a canoeist who went missing in the Rappahannock River.

Authorities were called Saturday after a report of a capsized canoe. The Free-Lance Star reports a woman swam to the King George side of the river, but the man didn't make it.

Divers from Fredericksburg and Caroline and King George counties were involved in the search Saturday night and Sunday.

The man's identity hasn't been released. He's about 30 years old and is from King and Queen County.

The search is set to resume on Monday.
