A civilian dive team from Edmonton assisted by conducting an underwater search of the falls and the surrounding water in the late morning on Saturday, but the search did not yield any results. Police are considering the use of a police dog, and a continued ground and aerial search, but search attempts continue to be dictated by factors such as weather and water levels.

The 14-year-old youth was swimming with a group of friends at the falls late in the evening on July 24 when he reportedly pulled under by the current. Red Willow Falls is located south of the hamlet of Elmworth – about 27 kilometres south of Beaverlodge – near the border.
