Search and rescue crews will continue their search Wednesday for a man who fell into the Arkansas River.

Crews believe it's a recovery mission, not a rescue.

The Pueblo Swift Water Rescue Team spent most of Monday afternoon looking for the victim, who reportedly fell into the river when the tube he was on tipped over. Authorities say he was on the "swift water course" in Pueblo when he fell in, and he was not wearing a life jacket. The chief says the river has twice the volume of water now that it usually has.

They resumed the search Tuesday for the man's body, but were not able to locate him.

Authorities released the victim's name on Tuesday. He has been identified as 23-year-old Christopher Frazier.
