A search is underway for a father and son who went missing while swimming in a river in the Hudson Valley.

The raft of the 9-year-old boy and 46-year-old father overturned in the Neversink River near the Oakland Valley Campground in Orange County on Saturday morning, Aug. 18, state police said.

The Neversink River is located north of I-84 and west of Route 17.

The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. State Police and numerous area fire rescue squads immediately responded.

Aviation, Underwater Recovery Team, drones, and multiple airboats were deployed.

After the two were not located, the search was suspended Saturday night due to weather and river conditions. The search resumed Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m.

The American Red Cross is also assisting at the scene at a command center established at a school near where the two went missing.
