Kenny D. Swan, 60 of Riggins, is presumed drown in the Little Salmon River after a motor vehicle accident.

Yesterday, Monday, May 29, at 1:18 pm PT, the Idaho County Sheriff's Office was advised a vehicle had gone into the Little Salmon River near milepost 193 on Highway 95.

The witness observed a subject exit the vehicle as it was floating downstream. This subject never made it to the riverbank and it is presumed he was swept downstream.

The vehicle is currently located approximately 1/4 mile downriver from milepost 193 and recovery will not be attempted until river conditions are more suitable.

Swan had his black and white canine "Calvin" with him in the vehicle and he has not been recovered either.

The victims family has been notified and deputies will continue to patrol the river in an effort to locate the victim's body.
