[a23]developingriver missing sw right now you are taking a look at the area where he was last seen. he was last seen near rocky riffle. today newswatch12's cassidy delamarter spoke with the divers and the resort nearby. she tells us why sheriff's say they're appreciative of the galice resort employees... for their quick jump to action. "it was a split of the moment decision." galice resort employees didn't think twice... the moment they heard a swimmer was missing nearby in the rogue river... wendy says, "they saw the need, they jumped in a boat and ran the boat to the boat dock and hit the water." friends of 44-year-old jason briggs ran to the galice resort for help. they needed signal to call 9- 1-1. but they got more than just a phone call. two employees jumped into action to begin the search for briggs at 6:30. "they know how faraway help can be out here." by 9 p-m, the search transitioned into a recovery... that would resume today at 9 a-m. austin says, "you can only already passed the point of being rescued so there's a need to transition into looking and just trying to recover the body of the person that's missing." multiple agencies and crews helped with the search and rescue ... including five divers. one diver i spoke with says it's not uncommon for people to try swimming across the rogue river. james says, "well you can see that it's very calm but it can be deceiving. through here it's fairly shallow but you'll have a few places that are deeper but in any case you need to have a life jacket." cassidy says, "this small pathway here is just feet away from where he was camping with his friends and it's also the last place he was seen taking a quick dip without a lifejacket on." everyone i spoke with today... agrees on one thing. wendy says, "always wear a raft whether you're in a raft or swimming it's a needed item it's not a fashion accessory it's what can literally save your life." austin says, "having a life jacket has proved ... in almost every case... to save people's lives." james says, "the lifejacket is hopefully going to be what saves you." near merlin, cassidy delamarter, newswatch12.
