Search and rescue teams search for a man whose raft was flipped by outgoing tide at Netarts Bay outside Happy Camp in Tillamook County.

A man whose small raft was swept into the ocean and flipped over by the outgoing tide in Netarts Bay, near Happy Camp, has not been located by search and rescue teams, according to the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office.

Multiple search parties, including a Coast Guard helicopter, were launched after an emergency call arrived at 8:57 a.m. Tuesday, “but unfortunately, the man still has not been located,” officials said.

That morning, witnesses observed the man walking along the shoreline carrying an inflatable raft and two oars, officials said. He then paddled out into the fast-moving outgoing current and the raft quickly headed toward the mouth of the bay. The raft flipped over near the mouth of the bay, ejecting the man into the water, and the man disappeared underwater, police reports said.
