Rescue teams spent the Fourth of July on the Snake River searching for a man they said went missing Wednesday at midnight.
Averin Scott, 21, was last seen at the edge of the river near the Snake River KOA and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Scott’s shoe was found near the river, and his keys and phone were found at his house, Teton County Search and Rescue member Jen Reddy said.
Officials used jet boats to search the river Thursday while police and dogs combed the riverbanks in the 9000 block of South Highway 89. They called off the search just before 5 p.m.
Scott, of northern Arizona, is living in Teton County for the summer, Teton County Sheriff’s Sgt. Clay Platt said.
“He has some extended family here,” Platt said. “He’s been working at an oil change and car wash business in town.”
Scott was last seen wearing a black and gray jacket and black pants. He’s 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds and has long black hair.
Police were still interviewing Scott’s family and any potential witnesses at press time Thursday.
Police don’t believe Scott’s disappearance was a result of suspicious circumstances and are still treating it as a missing person case.
If you see Scott you’re asked to call 911 or dispatch at 733-2331.
