STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. -- The search continued Tuesday morning for a teenager who went missing Monday in the Rappahannock River in Stafford County.

The Stafford Sheriff’s Office says the 15-year-old went underwater at Falmouth Beach Monday afternoon and never resurfaced.

A search was called off after darkness set in Monday night and resumed Tuesday morning.

The incident is the third emergency on the river in eight days, according to the Free Lance-Star.

The Falmouth Beach parking lot is closed to the public during the search. The dive, boat and drone teams are assisting in the search.
