OREGON CITY -- The Clackamas County sheriff's office is resuming the search Monday morning for a rafter missing on the Clackamas River.

A friend reported 21-year-old Brighton Schmidt of Vancouver missing Sunday night when they failed to meet up at Carver Park.

The two had launched about 4 p.m. at Barton Park and became separated as it grew dark while they were on the water. The sheriff's office says Schmidt was last seen walking through a shallow finger of the river with a partially deflated float tube.

He was not wearing a life jacket and was reported to be heavily intoxicated.

It's unknown if he attempted to continue floating or climbed out of the river.
