Yamhill County Search of Yamhill River Continues With Weather/Water Limitations


News Release from Yamhill Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: May 1st, 2017 11:13 AM
The search for 25 year old Sheridan resident Bryan Disabatino continues on the Yamhill River in and around the City of Sheridan. Disabatino fell into the river from a bridge in town early Saturday morning.

Today, the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office will perform searches by helicopter, and at various river access points. Based on the weather forecast, murky water, and seasonal high water flows, watercraft is not a viable option at this time.

The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office and the family of Mr. Disabatino are discouraging friends and citizens from attempting to perform their own searches by watercraft. The current flow of water on the Yamhill River from Sheridan to McMinnville is currently listed at 2346 cubic feet per second and expected to increase with expected rain in coastal mountains.

To date, Yamhill County Search and Rescue has performed as thorough a search as possible based on the terrain and weather conditions. Search and Rescue will continue to monitor the weather and water levels in order to determine the next phase of the search. They have been assisted by the Sheridan Fire Department and Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue.
