GOLDEN, Colo. — Crews combed the waters of Clear Creek in Golden Tuesday, resuming their search for a 39-year-old man from Canada who has been missing since he jumped into the creek early June.

Sean Duplessis of Alberta, Canada was with a co-worker near the Clear Creek kayak park around midnight on June 7 when they decided to jump in, according to a release from the Golden Police Department. Duplessis’ coworker told police they both had been drinking.

At the time of the incident, rescue crews said the waters were too high to perform a complete search of the area.  Since water levels have recently subsided, swiftwater rescue crews were able to resume their search in the creek Tuesday.

From 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., members from the Golden Fire Department, Arvada Fire Department, Golden Police Park Rangers and Miller Coors Security combed the creek from bank to bank.

Golden Police also borrowed a drone to conduct an aerial search of the area last week.

Police said the search area included west of where Duplessis allegedly jumped in, through Golden and the Coors property and past city limits east of McIntyre Street.

Because Duplessis has not be found, police said he is stilled considered a missing person.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Golden Police at 303-384-8045.
