Fast moving water has hampered emergency crews in their retrieval of the body, which slipped away from them as they were pulling it in.
They are returning to the area at 8 o'clock this morning to search for the body. An underwater camera is part of the equipment they're using to try and find the body. (See more search scene photos below).
