Searchers on Wednesday found articles of the man’s clothing when they rappelled down to the base of Lower Falls, but there was still no sight of the body. A helicopter search Thursday did not yield any results either. Ground searches are being conducted at key observation points along the canyon rim. The canyon is anywhere from 800 to 1200 feet deep at certain points.
