A hiker is still missing days after being swept off her feet by flash flooding in Utah’s Zion National Park.
Jetal Agnihotri from Tucson, Arizona, went missing on Friday as she hiked across the Narrows amid warnings of downpours.
More than 20 search and rescue officials were searching for the 29-year-old on Sunday.
Rangers said Ms Agnihotri was among several hikers who were “swept off their feet” by rushing water on Friday afternoon as strong seasonal rain storms hit parts of the US southwest.
“Our search is continuing, we have more than 20 search and rescue team members in the field,” said a spokesman for Zion National Park.
He said their team was joined by staff from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Hurricane Valley fire district.
Ms Agnihotri’s brother Pujan told local media he believed a video showed her clinging to a log in fast-flowing water.
The video appears to show a man holding on to the log as it travels downstream, with a person facing upright floating in the water ahead of him.
Search and rescue teams have since recovered Ms Agnihotri’s backpack.
“She cannot swim. I mean the gushing water and all the debris and whatever it was in the water, I mean, I hope she’s okay,” Mr Agnihotri told KSLTV.
Ms Agnihotri’s friends said they were supposed to meet her near the visitor centre’s car park after she hiked through the Narrows.
But when she did not turn up they called for help.
They said they had heard there was a possibility of flash flooding and so the group decided to avoid the area, but Ms Agnihotri wanted to visit the Narrows and so decided to make the trip on her own.
One of her friends, Mostafa, said he thought she was “one of the toughest girls I have ever seen in my life”.
“I’m really sure she can fight with that river and she can make it out,” he told KSLTV.
