The search resumes this morning for a man who turned up missing after attempting to swim in the Potomac River over the weekend.
Rescue teams from Montgomery and Fairfax counties launched an initial search Saturday for the unidentified swimmer who jumped into the Potomac, and disappeared shortly before 6 p.m.
Authorities say the person was last seen in the area of Mather Gorge, near Bear Island. Swimming in the Mather Gorge section of the Potomac is prohibited.
A representative with Montgomery County Fire and Rescue says the focus of the operation has now transitioned from search and rescue, to search and recovery.
