(OAKLAND, Calif.) The search for a man who disappeared after his canoe capsized on the Mokelumne River will resume Monday, East Bay Times reports.

The capsizing happened near the Highway 12 bridge near Isleton on Sunday around noon when the Coast Guard received reports that three men were in the water after the wake of a passing boat caused them to overturn.

Two of the three men were able to reach the shore but one of the men remains missing.

A man who identified himself as the missing boater’s uncle told the Sacramento TV station KOVR that the missing person is a 22-year-old man from Oakland.

The group was at the Delta for a family outing.
