EMMETT, Idaho - An LSU Eunice student is missing after he fell out of a raft in an Idaho River Saturday.

Everette Jackson was tubing with friends when he fell out into the Payette River, according to KTVB-TV.

Family members on social media said the 21-year-old and his girlfriend missed their exit and tried to paddle back to a dock. She was able to cling to a branch, but Jackson was reportedly pulled away in the current.

The Gem County Sheriff's Office is searching the river by jet skis and jet boats. Authorities are asking the public to stay away from the area. The sheriff's office said, at this time, the river current is dangerous to anyone not using a motorized boat.
