SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Spokane man is missing and presumed dead after Franklin County sheriff's deputies say he did not surface from the water under Palouse Falls.

Franklin County officials received reports at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday that a 23-year-old man was sucked under the raging waterfall while swimming with his friends.

The Spokesman-Review reports that two other men were also sucked under due to the strong current but were able to resurface. They both made it back to shore.

The 23-year-old has not been located.
