Dive teams search for man in NY river

GRANVILLE (AP) -- Dive teams are looking for a man who jumped into a rain-swollen river in eastern New York and failed to resurface.
 
The Glens Falls Post-Star reports that the man jumped into the Mettawee River in the Washington County town of North Granville Saturday afternoon. A friend who was with him notified authorities when the man failed to come back up. The man's name hasn't been released.
 
There are numerous small gorges, rocky outcroppings and waterfalls in the area where the man jumped in. The current was much swifter that usual Saturday because of recent rains.
