Several state agencies and volunteers are searching for a missing California Men's Colony correctional officer.
Derrick Rush went missing on Friday. His friends tell KSBY News Rush was on a fishing trip near Kern River. The Tulare County Sheriff's Department says its search teams are flying over the area, but as of now they only see white water.
Search efforts are focusing on the Corral Creek area, where the water is considered to be class five rapids. Similar incidents have occurred in this area of the river. Sheriff's deputies say the water can look disceptively calm, but they advise people to stay out of the water.
