ID - Dean Christianson, 43, Cascade, 23 April 2014
Austin Man Missing In Idaho -
An Austin man went missing in Idaho this weekend after friends say he stopped beside a powerful river during a hike. Dean Christianson of Austin had flown to Cascade, ID, to help his friend Jason Koehler move back to Minnesota. ABC 6 spoke to Koehler by phone and he said they had just finished a hike when Christianson went down to the side of the Payette River to fill his water bottle."I couldn't quite see him, the river's edge was just slightly out of sight,” Koehler said. “I hopped out of the truck and looked over the guard rail and he wasn't there, so I ran down to the water's edge and looked both ways and he still wasn't there." Koehler said he ran part of the way down the river before stopping a passing sheriff’s deputy."When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

Police put search on hold to get more information.
According to KTVB, Chief Deputy Dale Rogers says if Christianson did indeed fall into the fast-moving water, they would not expect a good outcome. KTVB notes investigators haven’t ruled out something else happening to Christianson; but searchers did find dollar bills in the water Friday evening.

The body of a 43-year-old man who went missing near the Payette River May 2 was recovered on Friday, according to the Boise County Coroner's Office. The identity of Dean Eric Christianson was confirmed through dental records, according to Boise County Chief Deputy Coroner Michael Johnson. His next of kin has been notified.
Investigators found no indications that Christianson died from anything other than drowning, Johnson said. His body was found in the river near milepost 4 of the Banks-Lowman Highway (Highway 17).
