The search continues for 38-year-old Arturo Rouillard of Santee.
As of this morning, the ATV had not been located. The river depth near the accident is about 13 feet. Searchers have used sonar and said there's a lot of debris in the water, especially logs.
The Santee Fire and Rescue will continue searching the river where the ATV entered the water and areas down-stream. Homer Fire and Rescue assisted last Thursday and again on Sunday. Additionally, the crews utilized a cadaver dog last Friday, but efforts came up empty.
His mother, Laura Rouillard, said her only son was fishing with his girlfriend Adrienne Denney at Crazy Peak and was last seen at 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
“Early Saturday morning, him and his girlfriend were on the ATV and it went over a cliff and into the water," Rouillard said.
The fisherman who found Denney's body said he didn’t even realize until the next day that there was another person involved in the accident. He saw law enforcement canvassing the area again Sunday morning when he stopped to inquire about the situation and was told the woman’s boyfriend remained unaccounted for.
Law enforcement and volunteers have been searching for Rouillard since discovering his girlfriend’s body. Rouillard is approximately 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs 249 pounds.
Any information can be directed to the Santee Tribal Police Department at 402-857-2527.
