The search for a swimmer who went missing in southern Alberta will continue on Monday.

RCMP were called to Taber Park at around 2 p.m. Sunday for reports of a missing man.

Investigators said a man in his 30’s had been swimming in The Oldman River with three of his siblings when he climbed a pillar and jumped into the water, but never resurfaced.

RCMP aren’t calling the search a recovery operation at this time.

The MD of Taber is located about 50 kilometres east of Lethbridge.
