Idaho man missing after falling into Kootenai River

LIBBY, Mont. (AP) — A 41-year-old Idaho man is missing after falling into the Kootenai River in northwestern Montana.

The Lincoln County sheriff’s office says Trevor Applegate of Bonners Ferry fell into the water Tuesday evening near Kootenai Falls, which is between Libby and Troy.

High water, freezing temperatures and icy river banks were hampering the search for Applegate.

Undersheriff Brandon Huff says search teams are using ground and boat crews as well as drones to search for Applegate.
