Crews in Idaho have called off the search for a missing Minnesota man.

Forty-three-year-old Dean Christianson of Austin, Minnesota, went missing Friday. Authorities believe he fell in the Payette River, about an hour north of Boise.

Christianson was helping a friend drive back to Austin when they stopped for a hike. He went to fill up a water bottle and he never returned.

Officials say the river is extremely high and dangerous. They’ve called off a search on the water until investigators have more information.
